Mediterranean Tuna Salad
Tuna salad without mayonnaise? You bet! This tuna salad is packed with Mediterranean flavor but uses olive oil instead of mayonnaise. You won't miss the mayo at all!
I didn't feel the salad greens needed any additional dressing but if you do, an oil and vinegar/vinaigrette would be best.
Mediterranean Tuna Salad 1 (4.5 oz.) tuna in extra virgin olive oil, undrained 3 eggs, hard-cooked, chopped 1/3 cup diced fresh tomatoes or halved grape tomatoes 1/4 cup kalamata olives pitted and sliced 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese 3 tbsp. chopped red onion 2 tbsp. chopped peperoncini peppers or other brined pepper (mild or medium heat)* 1 tsp. red wine vinegar 1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves Unrefined sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 8 cups Salad greens 1.

2. Place 2 cups salad greens onto each of 4 dinner plates. Top each with an equal amount of tuna salad.
*If you want a bit more spice and tartness you can leave the peppers only lightly drained. Servings: 4 Nutrition Facts Serving size: 1/4 of a recipe (7.9 ounces).
