Greek Tuna Pasta Salad is a nutritious, delicious and easy to make dinner. Loaded with veggies, healthy fats and protein for a hearty meal.
I can’t believe that school starts next week. My baby boy is not a baby anymore and he starts next week in Early Childhood class! Another major event is that my MIL who now lives with us is actually going back home for 6 months and we will be taking care of the little guy and working full-time all on our own. I have been testing easy recipes for quick and healthy dinners to keep as sane and this Greek Tuna Pasta Salad is a winner.

- Boil the pasta one day in advance, drain, mix in 1 tablespoon of olive oil (so it doesn’t stick) and store in a container in the fridge
- Use pitted olives, or if you prefer whole olives they can be cut in advance and stored in the fridge
- Tomatoes can be sliced and kept in a container in the fridge as well
- For even more protein, canned beans or chickpeas can be mixed in
- Extra veggies can be added: sliced fresh cucumbers, onions, grilled or raw zucchini or grilled mushrooms
