This healthy take on tuna salad is light and refreshing with no mayo but packs in lots of protein. Using Garlic Dill Mustard from Mustard and Co. delivers extra layers of flavor without adding sugar found in most mustards you'll find in the store. We love to stuff a pita with it and some lettuce but it's also great in a lettuce wrap or eaten with greens as a salad.


  • 1 can sustainable tuna
  • 1 cup of tepary beans
  • red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes 
  • olive oil
  • garlic dill or dijon mustard
  • fresh dill, chopped fine
  • lemon juice
  • salt
  • cracked black pepper
  • sprinkle of piment d'ville
  • Pita bread and lettuce for serving (optional)


Combine olive oil, mustard, dill, lemon juice and seasonings in a bowl. Mix in the tuna and red bell pepper and then gently fold in the tepary beans. Serve stuffed in pita bread or over greens as a salad.

In the Basque region of France they don't soak their signature Tolosa beans, they slowly braise them with just water, salt and olive oil. Time and heat to transform even the dense beans from dry to creamy masterpieces. This method works just as well for all heirloom beans! Read more about my bean braising experiments...
