One of my favorite sandwich is spicy tuna at Joe & The Juice, and that is where the idea for this salad came from. I am not a big tuna salad eater but somehow I think this one works really well.

Tuna is somehow really good in spicy dishes and I have added the feta cheese to get the nice soft salty flavour, so I would recommend to put the feta cheese in first, taste and then the salt because you don´t need as much salt when you have the salty cheese.
I have also added pickled jalapeño which I absolutely love but that is optional and I have made the salad both with and without … it is just as good either way .
