This is a great tuna salad for when you don’t have any Paleo mayo handy! This Paleo Italian tuna salad recipe uses olive oil instead of mayo to make the tuna moist and tasty.

If you prefer a tuna salad recipe with mayo, then try this Apple Curry Tuna Salad recipe. And this is my favorite Paleo mayo recipe currently.

If you want to make these into a really pretty appetizer, then you can load them onto cucumber boats.
