Tuna & Artichoke Salad
From EatingWell: May/June 1995
An unusual and rich flavor combination; serve this salad with sliced tomato on French bread.
- 1 12-ounce can chunk light tuna in water (or two 6-ounce cans), drained and flaked (see Note)
- 1 16-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped black olives, preferably imported Kalamata
- 1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
- Combine tuna, artichoke hearts, olives, mayonnaise, lemon juice and oregano in a bowl.
Tips & Notes
- Note: Chunk light tuna, which comes from the smaller skipjack or yellowfin, has less mercury than canned white albacore tuna. The FDA/EPA advises that women who are or might become pregnant, nursing mothers and young children consume no more than 6 ounces of albacore a week; up to 12 ounces of canned light tuna is considered safe.
