Tuna Salad Lunch: Mediterranean Style

This delicious recipe is sponsored by StarKist.

I’m turning the traditional tuna salad recipe upside down: Who says tuna salad can’t be done the Greek way?

Let’s be honest. Tuna is simple enough to be transformed into something great. StarKist Tuna Creations turns boring to bright with their new flavor packets. As a busy, on-the-go 20-something woman, StarKist tuna allows me to eat healthy and tastefully at work and on-the-go.

I love to put a Greek spin on almost any dish I make. Since StarKist Tuna Creations already has a Lemon Pepper flavor, they did half the work for me! Here is my favorite tuna salad recipe for lunch.

Greek Tuna Salad Lunch Recipe


• 1 pouch of StarKist Tuna Creations Zesty Lemon Pepper flavor

• 2 tbsp. fat free Greek yogurt (Perfect alternative to Mayonnaise!)

• 1 tbsp. olive oil

• Diced veggies of your choice (I like using red onion, celery, tomato and cucumber.)

• 3 oz. crumbled, low fat feta cheese

• Salad fixings

• Salt and pepper to taste

• Optional: Whole wheat pita bread


It can’t get much simpler than this. Put the tuna in a bowl, mix in the yogurt and olive oil then stir together.

Add your veggies and top it off with a little bit of salt and pepper seasoning. Pour everything in the bowl over a bed of salad. If you’re one of those people who just don’t feel filled up from a salad, toast and eat your whole wheat pita bread with the salad.

This lunch is perfect when I am busy and on-the-go. StarKist Tuna Creations comes in a pouch without the excess water and mess. No draining equals no hassle. It’s quick, easy, and obviously … delicious! As a health conscious woman, this is one of my favorite go-to lunches on a busy day. Enjoy!
