I made this salad for dinner on a hot night. earlier in the day I made the patties, so I just pulled them out when i got home from work, we made half the recipe. It would be best to keep the pieces of tuna small as these seems to be the key to getting the patties to stay solid. I really like the dressing on this and we doubled it, I'm glad we did cause we used it all.
I kept the lettuce, noodles, and dressing separate from the patties and brought it to work the next day. It was still great.
