OK, don't stone me for this but I HATE tuna salad. I never order it. Ever. I think it's gross and totally disgusting. Not because of the tuna but because of the mayonnaise. I've never been a fan of mayo, even when I was a kid. Once I saw someone make it in a demonstration (blending oil and egg together) and it sealed the deal for me forever. No mayo thank you very much, I'll stick with mustard.
But I really do like tuna. As I was rummaging through my fridge/pantry wondering what I was going to make last night, I came across a can. I also just happened to get my new shipment of feta from Athenos. A light bulb went off!
What if I make tuna salad with feta instead of mayo?! I had this great Lemon Garlic Oregano flavor that would be perfect with tuna. So I chopped some veggies and gave it a shot.
SO glad i did! This was totally delicious, light and super easy. I really felt like I was eating something from the deli. It made a great summer wrap but you could top a bed of greens with it or even eat it straight up.
This is how I made it but you may want to add some onion. I'm not the biggest fan of raw onion so I tend to forget about it for salads, but even I think a bit of chopped red onion would be great in this!
If you can't find the Lemon, Garlic & Oregano Feta, don't fret, just bump up the lemon juice and oregano to make up for it. You could even add a sprinkle of garlic powder.
- 1 5oz chunk light tuna packed in water, drained
- ¼ cup (34g) Athenos Lemon, Garlic & Oregano
- About ½ cup chopped cucumber
- About ½ cup halved grape tomatoes
- About ½ cup chopped bell pepper
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp dried oregano (or more to taste)
Combine all ingredients.
It doesn't get any easier then that!
Here's what half the recipe looked like on my wrap. I'd say it was about a cup but I didn't really measure it. I just eyeballed half and enjoyed the wrap last night for dinner.
I just made the other half and had it for lunch. It's totally good the next day, if not better. 🙂
Here's the nutritional information for just the salad, no wrap
