Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Hi Chefs, Myka here 👋

The humble tuna salad is a staple in the Myka refrigerator all-year-round, but it’s even more appealing in the summertime. Ready in a pinch and with no cooking required, this Mediterranean Tuna Salad is crispy, refreshing and flavorful.

To start, drain as much water as you can from a can of tuna, and put it in a mixing bowl. Break it up with a fork. Then, dice celery and white onion, chop your parsley, and add those to your bowl. Throw in your shredded carrots, then, drain the capers and add those as well. After that, add your chopped Calabrian peppers, before going in with your seasonings (we like salt, garlic powder, olive oil, and lemon juice).

Give it a thorough mix, and serve with your favorite bread or crackers.

Happy cooking!
