Mediterranean-flavoured tuna salad

I've been eating cereal with bran buds and pomegranate seeds, plus fruit, for breakfast almost every day for over a year, and I'm not sick of it yet. My patience for tuna-and-mayonnaise sandwiches lasted maybe a week. 

Seeing flavoured cans of tuna at the grocery store inspired me. I hate that you're charged a premium for the flavoured versions over plain tuna, but it's easy enough to copy the idea at home.

This easy tuna salad lunch was made with one can of flaked light tuna in water, 2T sun-dried tomato pesto, 2 chopped black olives, 1 diced tomato and one roasted red pepper. For a heartier meal, add chopped lettuce and shredded cheese and use a filling for a wrap.


  1. Wow such a simple but awesome sounding recipe. And I can't believe you're not tired of that breakfast yet! I get bored with food so quickly

  2. I got briefly sucked in by those cans of flavoured tuna, too - I don't know why it took me so long to clue in that I could just add the flavours myself. Seems silly now. I'm a big fan of the peanut one but I've never tried to recreate a mediterraean one. I think I just may be taking some lunch inspiration from this :)

  3. That looks so delicious. This is perfect for low carb eating. Lately I have been failing miserably at eating healthy, but this looks very flavorful. Can't wait to try this.

  4. just checking in to see how you are...


I genuinely enjoy reading everyone's comments. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!
