Greek Tuna Salad Bites

Happy Summer, y’all! It’s time for a new recipe redux recipe. This one is inspired by fellow Atlanta registered dietitians, Ann and Lesley over at MyMenuPal, the place to go for healthy menu planning made simple. As I scrolled through Instagram last month, I stopped at their eye catching Avocado Chicken Salad in a Cucumber Cup recipe.

Doesn’t it look tasty?

When charged with this month’s recipe redux challenge to highlight another member of the group, this stunning photo came to mind and I was inspired to create a similar cucumber appetizer. Plus – It’s easy. And as I finish out this month with two more trips, easy is very necessary.

These Greek Tuna Salad Bites combine the traditional flavors of a Greek salad with tuna for a protein-rich snack or appetizer. It’s a forgiving recipe that I made up on the fly using prepped chopped onions and peppers in the fridge. I also had some leftover olives from the supermarket olive bar so tossed those in. I love getting the flavors of Greek salad in one convenient little bite!

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley finely chopped

Instructions
