Mayo free Mediterranean tuna salad packed with tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, artichokes, and a two ingredient dressing. It’s so refreshing and just delicious all around!



  • 2 (5 oz.) cans olive oil-packed tuna, do not drain 
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onions
  • ¼ cup finely chopped orange bell pepper
  • 2 mini cucumbers, diced or 1/2 English cucumber
  • ½ cup jarred marinated artichokes, drained + chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped parsley + dill
  • Zest 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and fresh black pepper


  1. In a salad bowl, flake tuna with a fork into smaller chunks. 
  2. Add the rest of ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
  3. Cover tightly and refrigerate for 15 minutes before serving.


  • Tuna – we love Wild Planet tuna in extra-virgin olive oil for this recipe.
  • Leftovers – tuna salad will last up to 3 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It tends to “water out” if stored for longer period of time.
  • Variations – this salad is so easy to cutomize with extra add-in’s. See post for full list of ideas.
