Toasties with Tuna, Feta and Caper Spread

This Tuna Spread is simple to make, versatile and an all-round crowd pleaser. Add it to salads, dollop onto creamy pasta, serve with crackers or pop into toasties.

Toasties with Feta Caper and Tuna Spread

Perhaps it’s one of the most understated recipes I’ve shared; but a total winner in my books. Make it in a sandwich press or jaffle maker – and who doesn’t love a good toastie, amiright?

As a rule of thumb I keep canned of tuna in my pantry at all times. It makes for a good snack but this mixture of simple ingredients elevates it into a delicious lunch or supper and snacky dip when friends unexpectedly pop over.

Toasties with Feta Caper and Tuna Spread

I’ve found this to be my favourite way to enjoy tuna. It becomes something else thanks to the chunks of tangy feta, the peppery onion and extra virgin olive oil. And little pops of vinegary capers!

Toasties with Tuna Feta and Caper Spread

Most importantly, opt for quality canned tuna in olive oil – check the ingredients list. Alternatively, use tuna in springwater or brine. Then add some extra virgin oil to the fish first then mash it in with a fork. This way you will be avoiding excess processed oils.

When buying feta, opt for a soft textured variety, but again, check the ingredients list. Many soft and creamy feta cheeses are made with the addition of vegetable and other processed oils to achieve the desired texture.

I love this tuna spread in a toastie! You can also add it to salads, dollop onto creamy pasta, serve with crackers when entertaining.
