Now that summer is here, I am officially either making all of my meals on the grill, or making recipes that don’t involve any cooking.  Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration because my neighbors might think it’s a little strange when I start cooking my eggs on the grill at 7 a.m. but I think you know what I mean.  Very little stove action happens from June-August in my house.

We’ve already had a stretch of insanely hot temperatures in Minnesota and the entire time I couldn’t even think about turning on my oven. Plus I feel like I naturally want to spend less time in my kitchen during the summer, which makes me gravitate toward recipes that require the least amount of time to make.

Yellowfin Tuna, which I first used in my Tuna Sushi Rice Bowls, and I’m officially obsessed with it.  It comes in olive oil, giving it a much richer flavor than the tuna that comes in water.

You can serve this as you would any tuna salad – as a sandwich, on top of greens, or just on its own.  This tuna salad is a great healthy alternative to your typical tuna salad without mayonnaise.  The combination of the yellowfin tuna in olive oil with lemon juice, onion, bell pepper, and parsley gives it a ton of flavor.

So tell me – what’s your favorite way to eat tuna?!  Do you also prefer no-cook meals in the summer?
