This Mediterranean Tuna Salad is perfect to serve for lunch or a light meal. While I was cooking it, I tasted a little bit to see if it needed more seasoning, and I couldn’t stop eating it. It was so delicious!

This salad is not only delicious but it’s very quick to put together and there is no cooking involved. That’s what I call a win! It came together in about 15 minutes, and my husband and I loved it. My husband even had seconds. This Mediterranean Tuna Salad has definitely made our favorites list. The flavors are amazing and so refreshing. Perfect quick summer salad. I like to make this for my lunch at work.

If you are planning to make this ahead of time, you can chop the red bell pepper, red onion, and cucumber, and combine them with the rest of the ingredients just before serving. The Mediterranean tuna salad will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
