Pesto Tuna

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MrsSPheonix

I had tuna, but none of the usual ingredients I mix in. I found pesto in the back of the fridge. It's unusual I know, but we really liked the flavour combination, even my husband who hates trying new things :-) Note: the cook time is for refrigeration.

This was very good! I used basil walnut pesto since that is what I had. I had some plain and some on a sandwich. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make sure the tuna is as well drained as possible, I squeeze mine in a sieve.
  2. Mix with pesto and pepper to taste.
  3. If you want a more"spreadable" consistency, mix in the mayonnaise.
  4. A little lemon juice adds some zing if you like a more tangy flavour.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 20minutes to allow flavours to meld.
  6. Serve either as a sandwich or on crackers.
