|~Mediterranean Tuna Pasta Salad~|
3-4 cans of tuna packed in olive oil drained OR (2 cups roasted chicken diced)
1/2 bulb of fennel diced
1/2 small red onion diced or grated
1 celery stalk diced
2 tablespoons capers
1/4 cup olive oil plus more for drizzling
2 small raw garlic cloves minced
Juice and zest of 2 lemons ~OR~ zest and juice of 3 limes (I like limes in the tuna and lemons in the chicken)
fresh parsley chopped 1/2 cup loosely packed
½ cup Dukes Mayo (Dukes is my favorite store bought)
Salt & pepper (A small pinch of salt & a lot of black pepper!)
Shred the tuna with your fingers and add a drizzle of olive oil to moisten– Mix with the fennel, onion, garlic, lemon juice & celery in a bowl – add mayo, capers, parsley, zest, salt, and pepper and mix well– chill before serving.
1) On Italian Bread on a bed of Arugula or any other salad greens.
2) Mix with 1/2 pound cooked pasta shells that are cooled off and drizzled with some olive oil before mixing in, or else the pasta will dry out the tuna.
