Lebanese Inspired Tuna Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mme M

I made this tuna salad recipe up; it is based on a tabouli recipe. While there is no bulghour in this recipe, you could certainly add it in. (Soak 1 cup bulghour in warm water for 20 minutes. Drain. Squeeze dry. Combine with tuna salad.)

Excellent tuna salad! Leaving out the mayo made this salad so light and perfect for the summer. I did reduced the olive oil in half but this was the only change I made. I served it on a lettuce bed and it was a great lunch! Thanks for posting Melissa!
