5 minutes
  1. Mix everything together roughly trying not to completely mash out the tuna.

Suggested sides and notes:

Cut serving size in half if adding bread or pasta

For a more paleo alternative Eat on favorite paleo bread or possibly a cucumber sliced (cucumber sandwich)

For a GF alternative See paleo suggestion above, or make a handful of pasta to make a small pasta salad.

Note that if the tuna came in an oil base using that oil for additional liquid for this salad is recommend as you can get some nutrition from that oil.

Note that as a meat substitution, salmon is great for this salad recipe.

This is a quick lunch I make a couple times a week during summer months. It's light and no mayo to go bad it's safe to take out for picnic.
