  • 2 tbs Minced parsley or basil
  • Salt to taste
  • Buttered toast, if serving as sandwiches
  • 10 tbs Unsalted butter, softened, if serving as dip

1. In a large bowl, mash garlic with the back of a spoon. Whisk in the lemon juice and 5 tablespoons of olive oil. Combine with the tuna, onion, olives, capers, herbs and salt to taste.

2. Serve on buttered toast for sandwiches, or make into a dip: Pulse the tuna salad and butter in a food processor until it is creamy.
