Have you ever tried green olive tuna salad? It sounds crazy right? Who in the world would put green olives in their tuna salad!? I did and I'm not mad about it! I am on a serious tuna kick at the moment. It seems to be my go-to lunchtime craving lately and I’ve been experimenting by adding different items to my tuna salad.
The other day I randomly decided to try adding in a few green olives that were left at the bottom of the jar. I was looking to finish them off so I could bust out the fresh jar and I figured, what the hell, let's try it.
Here are a few awesome mayo recipes you can use, as we all know most of the store bought stuff is full of terrible ingredients:
- My Homemade Avocado Oil Mayo Recipe
- NomNom Paleo’s Mayo Recipe
- Melissa Joulwan’s Homemade Mayo Recipe
- Food Lover’s Primal Palate Macadamia Nut Mayo Recipe
- Everyday Paleo’s Homemade Mayo Recipe
For times when I just can’t make my own I do keep a jar of Olive Oil Mayonnaise on hand. It’s not the best and probably isn’t paleo, but it’s better than the standard store-bought mayo and it works for me. Happens to be vegan as well for you that have trouble with eggs.
Green olive tuna salad actually turned out really great and I thought I would share. Let me know what you think if you try it and I’d love to know what you like to mix into your tuna, share in the comments!
