After you've combined all the ingredients let the salad marinate 20-30 minutes before serving. I added some roasted pine nuts and chopped mint leaves (instead of basil as I didn't have any) had it with some toasted bread so very delightful.
While this salad was easy to make I found it bland and "dry". Eating Well has far better salads you should try instead. We used tuna packed in water so we'll use another fish and oil next time I guess.
I made this recipe exactly as written. It was delicious inexpensive and easy to put together. I used a high quality tuna and I felt like that made a difference. I will definitely make this again and I'd like to try it with tuna packed in oil as another reviewer mentioned.
A quick and light dinner My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this recipe made some small changes based on what we had in the kitchen - replaced red onion with shallots tuna in olive oil (drained but added some of that oil instead of the extra-virgin olive oil in the recipe) I don't like parsley so I skipped it. I am sure I'll be making this dish again and again in the future but for the next time around will definitely double the garlic and shallots for a more intense flavor. Pros: quick healthy fulfilling
Perfect Nutritious Meal for a Hot Summer's Day Made this for a light meal on a 100 degree summer's day. It couldn't be easier and just what I was looking for with not much energy to cook and not much of an appetite due to the heat. Added 1 1/2 cups of cherry tomatoes for color. I will definitely be filing this one in my recipe collection! Pros: Quick. Easy. Cheap. Nutritious. Filling. Vegetarian. Great for a picnic or BBQ. Cons: Absolutely none!
Amazing! Love Love Love this recipe!!!!! Light and full of flavor great on a bed of bib lettuce drizzled with olive oil and some freshly ground black pepper and salt. Pros: healthy and delicious Cons: none
I'll be making this the next time I have white beans on hand. I've always wanted to make a lighter tuna salad to stuff in a pita and this is it! And I will probably do what the first commenter did and add feta. Feta makes everything better!
