Mediterranean Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe

    4 Servings


For the Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Maple Syrup
  • Salt and Pepper, To taste
For the Salad:
  • 8 ounces Penne, Cooked and rinsed under cold water
  • 1 tablespoon Capers
  • handful Fresh Parsley, Chopped
  • 1 small Red Onion, Chopped
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Black Olives
  • 16 ounces Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper, Sliced
  • 1 small can Tuna, Drained
  • 2 large handful Fresh Arugulas


  1. Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, and salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Add the penne, capers, parsley, onion, olives, tomatoes, bell pepper, tuna, and arugula to the dressing and toss well.
  3. I recommend serving the salad immediately. Double the dressing if you want to make it ahead of time, keep the salad well chilled and add the extra dressing just before serving. I’d also recommend adding the arugula last-minute, else it will wilt.
