1/2 stalk celery, minced
1 finely chopped scallion – green part only (optional)
2 tbsp lemon juice, or more to taste

- Pour the tuna into a small mixing bowl. Use a fork to break the tuna chunks into very small pieces.
- Add the basil, celery, scallions, and lemon juice to the bowl. Use the fork to stir all the ingredients together till well mixed.
- Add extra virgin olive oil to moisten the tuna to your liking. I usually use between 1 and 2 tbsp. Season with salt and pepper to taste; sea salt and freshly ground pepper are best.
