​Summer Tomato and Tuna Salad

If you think canned tuna belongs between two slices of bread, think again, this vibrant salad is just as easy to make, healthier, and a whole lot more exciting.

Love it. Best tuna that we can get in the U.S. Closest thing to the freshness of the tuna we bring back from Italy.

Wow!! First time buyer, and I’ll never go back to other company. Light, flaky and moist yet flavorful. Albacore Tuna with Olive Oil is delicious. Genova is my new brand in seafood.

Absolutely adore the yellowfin tuna with olive oil. I can eat it straight without adding any extras, it also is extremely healthy! I never knew I could LOVE tuna, especially without mayo!

Hands down the best canned tuna I've ever had. Always in nice meaty chunks, and the taste is out of this world.

I just tried Genova tuna in oil for the first time. I have to say it is some of the freshest tasting tuna I have tried. I am hooked! #GenovaSeafood
