Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Mediterranean Tuna Salad

When you are out of Mayo and want a different take on Tuna Salad this one is delicious! It has perfect protein, fat, carb combination to get you to your next meal and so many flavors and textures! I put the mediterranean version below, but for the picture I added cilantro and pickled jalepenos to spice this up because I didn't have parsley or dill.
