Delicious and easy-to-make meal prep tuna salad (or a regular batch tuna salad!)

20 Minutes Total Time

4 Servings


  • 3 – 5 oz. cans Genova Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil, drained
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion (soak in cold water for 5 minutes to take away the “bite” if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons pickle relish (or finely chopped bread and butter pickles)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/3 cup mayo (up to 1/2 cup for “creamier” tuna)
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste


  1. Thoroughly drain the tuna and place in a large bowl. Add the finely chopped celery, finely chopped red onion (drained if you soaked in water), pickle relish, parsley, mayo, dijon mustard, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt + pepper to taste.
  2. Stir to combine and enjoy immediately OR separate into meal prepping containers.
  3. To meal prep: separate the tuna salad into 3 or 4 parts and place in airtight containers. In separate containers/bags add some sides such as fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, pita chips, whole grain bread, etc.
