High Protein Tuna Pasta Salad

a fresh take on tuna salad

By: Izy Hossack
An easy tuna pasta salad to mix up for a high protein, lunchbox-friendly meal with flavors of the Mediterranean.


  • Cook the protein pasta in a large pot of salted water until al dente, around 7 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool it down.
  • Add the pasta to a large mixing bowl along with the tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes and capers. Mix in the lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil and a pinch of salt.
  • If you’re eating this now, add the tuna and rocket, mix to combine, then serve.
  • If eating another day, store this mixture in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. On the day of eating, mix the tuna and rocket into the pasta before serving.
  • Enjoy!
