Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, carrots and celery add a nice range of flavors to this Mediterranean Tuna Salad. Instead of mayo, the salad is dressed with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and a little mustard. Always look for sustainable pole & line caught tuna and remember to check the ingredients of your condiments in order to make this Whole30 or Paleo compliant.
