Colorful Tuna Salad

This is our favorite tuna salad which we developed over years and only needs some bread to make a wonderful complete meal. It’s fast, healthy and really doesn’t need mayonnaise.

In this case I adorned the dish with the edible Nasturtium flowers.

You need:

  • 2 (7 ounce) cans tuna fish
  • 1 red bell peppers or 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 small red onion
  • 10 basil leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili (optional)
  • 4 -8 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice or 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes


1.    With you fork mash the tuna salad.
2.    Add all the other ingredients and use tomatoes for decoration.
3.    Serve with fresh or toasted bread.

  1. I made this for lunch today and it was very good! My husband thought it was much better than “regular” tuna salad. (I didn’t have any red pepper, so added a little more onion. Also, I used the balsamic vinegar, so the tuna looks a bit dark.

    • Oh! Thanks a lot for the great review and thanks to your husband as well for the nice comment!. I’m really glad you loved it! At home I have white and dark balsamic vinegar, sometimes I use the light one and sometimes the dark wine. Both work well!
