Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Sandwiches are one of Alfred’s favorite foods. He loves all varieties from hot and toasty paninis to cold and creamy egg salad. This tuna is one of his latest favorites. Unlike traditional tuna salad, this one is free of mayo and relish. Instead, it is made moist by olive oil and flavored with olives, capers and basil. In addition to being great on sandwiches, this Mediterranean- inspired tuna salad makes a great topping for salads or a filling for veggies such as celery sticks, and hollowed out zucchini, tomatoes, or cucumbers. With back to school time just around the corner, it is a easy, healthy, and portable lunch option to add to your repertoire.

1 Garlic clove, finely minced or pressed
1/4 Cup Red Onion, finely chopped
1/4 Cup Olives, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons Capers, finely chopped
