Mediterannean Tuna Salad


Tuna Salad

Tuna Salad

Kevin D Weeks
This is an excellent dinner salad ready in 10 minutes. I usually serve it on a bed of lettuce and sometimes I'll add a few pitted olives or crumbled feta. It also good served in pita bread or stuffed in a tomato. My preference is for tuna packed in olive oil because I think it tastes better than tuna packed in water, but it's entirely up to you.
