Mediterranean Tuna Salad

A great way to serve this salad is to slice a 9-inch round focaccia in half horizontally, fill it with the tuna, and press a plate down on top of the round bread. Place a heavy can or weight on top for an hour, and the dressing will seep into the bread. Slice and serve.

Ingredients

  • Four 6-ounce cans albacore tuna, drained well
  • One 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/2 Cup chopped red bell or piquillo peppers
  • 3/4 Cups sliced Greek olives
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 Cup chopped basil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 Cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and gently fold together until well combined. Serve on sliced bread as a sandwich or over a green salad.
