Tuscan-Style Tuna Salad

April/May 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (319 votes)

This streamlined version of a northern Italian idea is perfect for a summer evening: no-fuss, no-cook and big taste. You can even make it ahead and store it, covered, in the refrigerator for several days. If you do, use it as a wrap filling for the next day's lunch.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This is also beautiful and tasty made with salmon and red kidney beans. Try using fresh fennel in the salad or minced tarragon for added flavor. "

This salad was so quick and easy to put together! I absent-mindedly opened one can of tuna and one can of shrimp, and I went ahead and used shrimp in place of part of the tuna. The result was delicious, and I'm sure it would taste great with all tuna. However, this salad gave me a terrible case of indigestion.

Quick, Easy, Delicious

Not necessarily, true. It

Not necessarily, true. It depends on individual dietary needs. I have been hospitalized for dehydration brought on by having too little sodium. We need salt to help absorb water and electrolytes, and people with certain digestive diseases do not absorb hardly anything through the colon and are told by medical professionals to consume more salt. For more information on how misunderstood salt is as far as health needs, try Googling "The Salt Guru" and watching his videos.

Needs more flavor

I found this recipe to be bland. I added much more lemon juice and some herbs to give it more flavor.

easy, healthy
