  • prep
  • 4 servings


  • 2 (5 to 6 oz.) cans white tuna in water

  • 1/4 cup chopped Lindsay® Ripe Pitted or Greek Kalamata Pitted Olives

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4 red onion, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon Lindsay® Capers (optional)

  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. Use a can opener to cut open the cans of tuna, but leave the lid in place. Holding the cans over the sink or a bowl, press the lid into the tuna fish and tilt the can to drain all the liquid. Remove the lids and transfer the tuna fish to a large mixing bowl.

  2. Add the olives, oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, red onion, capers (if using), a sprinkle of salt, and a few cracks of fresh black pepper to the tuna fish.

  3. Stir with a fork to combine, breaking up any large chunks of tuna as you go. Taste and add more of any of the ingredients to taste.

  4. Serve immediately or store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
