12ounces(dry weight) canned wild caught solid pack tuna in water
3stalks celeryfinely diced
3tablespoonscapersrinsed and drained
2tablespoonsfinely chopped fresh parsley
English muffins or whole grain breadoptional for serving
Greenssuch as spinach, arugula, or chopped romaine (optional for serving)
Place the dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside to reconstitute while you prepare the rest of the salad.
To a food processor fitted with a steel blade, add 3/4 cup of the beans and the Greek yogurt. Blend until the beans start to become broken up and combined with the yogurt, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed. Add the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, salt, pepper, and onion powder. Process until smooth, scraping down the bowl once or twice as needed.
In a large mixing bowl, flake the tuna, leaving it fairly chunky. Add the celery, capers, parsley, and remaining beans.
Drain the sun-dried tomatoes and pat dry. Add them to the bowl with the tuna mixture.
Pour the Greek yogurt dressing over the top. With a spatula, gently stir to combine. Switch to a fork, continuing to stir and using the fork to break apart any clumps of ingredients that are sticking together, until the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Serve however you like: open face on toasted English muffins or toasted bread topped with arugula (our favorite), on whole grain bread with arugula or spinach as a sandwich, over a bed of greens, or however you like.
*If using oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, there’s no need to cover them with hot water. Simply dice them, pat away excess oil, then add them to the recipe as directed
TO STORE: Refrigerate tuna salad in an airtight storage container for up to 4 days.
TO FREEZE: While you can freeze tuna salad in a pinch, it's not ideal; the dressing may make it watery once thawed and the vegetables will lose some crunch, so you might want to drain it before serving. Freeze leftovers in an airtight freezer-safe storage container for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
