In a Greek home, I once was served a delicious tuna salad, and here is my attempt to recreate it. It’s probably not, I believe, arch-typical Greek, but it consists of ingredients that are found in most Greek kitchens. So it’s ok to give you the recipe here, I think.
The salad can be served as a meze; you can eat it in a sandwich, or tear up a few different types of green salad leaves and add tuna salad in splotches on top. Seriously good!
- 2 large tablespoons Greek yogurt
- 2 large tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 to 3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
- 2 to 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
- 1 can tuna in water
- salt, pepper
Mix yogurt, mayonnaise, red onion and dill. Pour the brine from the tuna and stir the tuna vigorously in the sauce until it flakes into small pieces. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
And that’s it!
