  • 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

Notes

  • 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.
