A bit salty but I balanced it with half of a croissant. I added cracked pepper and it was very tasty. I will make it again. Read More

It was salty but very good. I used Fat Free Feta cheese and the single serving cups of Dole No Sugar added mandarin oranges. I had more than 2 cups of spinach. It was a huge meal. Delicious! Read More

I made some changes since I didn't have everything listed. My tahini sauce was also already blended with mint parsley cilantro garlic olive oil and lemon. I added a juice of one lime to thin it out. I finely chopped some olives and chopped green onions. Instead of eating the tuna on top of the spinach I chiffonade the spinach and sprinkled some sliced almonds. It didn't NEED the feta but still I wish I had some. DELISH. Read More
