Lemon Pepper Tuna Salad + New Favorite Chopped Salad

I wanted to share two recipes that have been on repeat around here. I love light yet filling lunches and this has been a favorite combo. The flavors in both salads are so fresh and vibrant. By now y’all know Tonnino Tuna is basically all I buy. It is hands down the best tuna. Once you try it you will never look at canned tuna the same. The quality and flavor is top notch. You can find it at Whole Foods and Harris Teeter- but the best flavor selection is on Amazon, I typically buy the jalapeƱo flavor but decided to branch out with the lemon pepper and it is equally amazing.

This is a lighter mayo free tuna salad. It is filled with all my favorites like spicy pickles and capers and tossed with a Dijon Vinaigrette. The chopped salad recipe below pairs perfectly with the tuna!

L E M O N P E P P E R T U N A S A L A D

2 jars Tonnino Lemon Pepper Tuna drained

4 stalks celery diced

1/4 red onion diced

3-4 tablespoons capers (I like lots )

chopped hot pickles (Grillo’s are my favorite)

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 tablespoon whole grain mustard

1 tablespoon champagne vinegar

In a bowl combine tuna, red onion, capers and celery. Season with salt and pepper.

In a jar combine olive oil, dijon, whole grain mustard and champagne vinegar. Shake to combine. Drizzle over tuna mixture and stir. You may not need all the dressing, just add until desired taste.
