I’ve always loved anything “greek” when it comes to cuisine. The more feta, olives, and flavor, the better. And to top it off with a good protein, like tuna or chicken makes it even better. Today I wanted to share with you a super simple take on an easy lunch recipe with this Greek Cucumber Tuna Salad recipe. And now, when you think tuna salad…don’t think of it smothered with mayo, but instead mixed with fresh veggies and topped with a light Greek sauce and salt and pepper. Even my husband gave it the man-stamp of approval– win in my book!!
For this recipe I used tunafish, but you can substitute it for chicken or turkey if desired.
Here’s what you need for this recipe:
- tuna or chicken
- cherry tomatoes
- feta cheese
- sliced olives
- Greek dressing of choice
- optional: onions, banana peppers
Start by using a spiraling tool and spiraling your cucumber. You’ll get about 2-3 cups of spiralized cucumber depending on the size of your cucumber.
Next add your other veggies like tomatoes, feta cheese, and olives and then layer your protein on top.
Add a half cup of Greek dressing on top and mix gently and then season with salt and pepper and enjoy!!
The whole thing takes about 15 minutes to make and could easily serve as a side dish for a family of four. This is something very simple to make and easily interchanged with different types of dressings and cheeses over top. My husband LOVED it and immediately asked if he could take it for lunch at work.
I love that it’s not only pretty and colorful, but super tasty and quick to make.
I can’t wait to make this again for spring cookouts and BBQ’s and encourage you to try this out ASAP and put your own personal touch on it!!
