Hold the mayo with this lemony Mediterranean twist on tuna salad. Be sure to use tuna packed in water, not oil. It has a cleaner tuna flavor and is lighter than tuna packed in oil. We used English cucumbers for added texture and crunch. English cucumbers can be stored at room temperature. Just don’t store them in your fruit bowl alongside bananas. This would also be delicious spooned into a whole wheat pita pocket. It also tastes great on crackers as an afternoon snack. Serve this with a trio of salads as well.

lemon zest

½ tsp, (or more to taste)
