Feta Tuna Salad Recipe

Do you guys ever get those cravings for tuna? ‘Cause I do.

Until this day, I’ve only had tuna with swiss cheese. I was missing out all this time on tuna WITH FETA CHEESE! They go really well together, trust me. And now, you don’t have to miss out on the combo any longer. Hopefully you weren’t losing too much sleep over it.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Skip the mayo - this tuna with greek yogurt helps prevent that dry tuna taste, and the combination of feta cheese and dill spices brings out a refreshing flavor!

  • 1 can tuna
  • 1-2 tbsp plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic
  • ½ tsp dill weed
  • 1 whole wheat wrap or flatbread, or 2 pieces sandwich bread
  • 1/4 cup arugula
  • 2 tbsp feta cheese
  • ½ apple, optional
  • Toppings: avocado, tomato

Instructions

  1. Mix the tuna, greek yogurt, lemon juice, mustard and spices in a bowl.
  2. Open your flatbread (or sandwich) and place bed of arugula on the bottom.
  3. Layer your tuna salad mixture on top. Top with tomato, avocado and cheese.

If you’re a tuna lover, these pictures don’t do the taste justice. Next time, I need to make this on a nice, starchy Kaiser roll so there’s more bread for this tuna goodness.

I even added apple pieces the second time around for a little crunch (since I didn’t have celery) and it added just that little bit of sweetness that it needed.

I’ve had it in a pita and on toast. I really can’t decide which I like better!

  1. baked oatmeal is so good! with lots of berries 🙂 and i definitely make bowls like that for breakfast! 😀 or snack… or dessert… or lunch. or anytime, lol. but always on top of yogurt 😀 😀

  2. I thought your food models were real food at first! I want try that deep dish pie from Chocolate Covered Katie, was it pretty easy to make? Hope you’re having a great week!

  3. Ooooh that sandwich from Alexander Michael’s looks amazing! And french fries are totally my weakness. That restaurant has been on my list to try for a while now, I am glad y’all enjoyed it!

  4. I filled out my bracket! I have UNC taking it too… hope it’s not wishful thinking. Kansas is looking strong…

    Love that tuna salad recipe! Geek yogurt goes in every salad I make now days.

    1. Yay, Tar Heels! I think of all the recent years, this is their best chance. I love Marcus Paige. Yep – now that I’ve had Greek Yogurt I can never go back to mayo!

  5. I agree. Sometimes french fries just hit the spot. 🙂 Thank the Lord that He made our bodies to process so many different kinds of foods. :)Those pitas looks AMAZING.

  6. Feta is seriously a game change. I never regret adding it!
    Totally agree about the french fries. I’ve been craving curly fries for like a month now and I think Terry and I are going to go get some today!

  7. I have a tub of feta that i really need to use so I’m excited for this! Feta and avocado is always a winning combo. That steak sandwich… Yaassss
