Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Recipe by Chef Kevin Roberts

This light-style tuna salad makes a good first course served over toast rounds. You won't miss the fat of the mayo in this tuna salad — the tomato juice adds zing and the horseradish mustard gives a kick.


Prep time: 10 Minutes

Cook time: 5 Minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings



  • ½ cup reduced-sodium tomato-vegetable juice
  • 4 tablespoons horseradish mustard or spicy brown mustard
  • 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna, packed in water, well drained
  • 2/3 cup chopped roasted red bell pepper
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • 4 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pitted Kalamata olives (about 5)


  1. Mix juice and mustard in medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat well. Cover and chill.
  2. Serve tuna salad over lettuce, on whole wheat rolls or on toast rounds.
