Paleo Tuna Salad on Lettuce -

Paleo Tuna Salad on Lettuce

  • Author: Raj - - inspired by Tuna Melts Mommy made me as a kid
  • Yield: 2-3 servings 1x


  • 2 cans tuna (drained)
  • 1.5 Tbsp dill
  • 2 green onions (finely sliced)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 23 Tbsp seed style mustard and/or dijon mustard (I used a mix of both)
  • 36 large leafy greens for each person (red lettuce pictured)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a mixing bowl, flake tuna with a fork.
  2. Add remaining ingredients (except greens) and mix.
  3. Place a bed of greens on plate(s) and top with tuna mixture.


Serve with my Momma’s Dill Pickles.

If you’re lacto-paleo, top this with grated cheese (it’s awesome with aged cheddar) and then melt. Or don’t. You’re call 😉
