80--- Greek Tuna Salad

Another easy, no cook summer recipe.  Just in time for the heat! The viniagrette is so light and summery- no heavy mayo here! 

Serve this in a pita pocket, on a bed of spinach, or with a few pita chips. 

Greek Tuna Salad
Serves 3

2 cans solid white albacore tuna, canned in water, drained, chunked
1/3 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup copped red onion
1/4 cup chopped kalmata olives
1 1/2 Tbsp capers

DRESSING
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp ground black pepper, or to taste
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dijon mustard

Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine tuna, capers, onion, tomatoes, and olives.  Stir in dressing ingredients and serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
