A nice quick summer lunch, or can be served as an elegant appetizer salad. If you can find tuna in olive oil, it's well worth it in this recipe, but when draining the tuna, save the olive oil for the dressing. Cook time is actually chill time.
This is a very flavorful, fairly spicy, Asian-type salad. If you don't like it too hot, substitute sweet chili sauce for the hot chili sauce or mix half and half. The flavors need a few hours to blend, so it's a good idea to let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours. Salad can be nicely garnished with additional cilantro and lime slices. You can also use diced cooked chicken in place of the steamed chicken breasts if desired.
This is a spicy Thai salad made with ground beef. The salad itself isn't something piled up on lettuce, but rather scooped up with lettuce leaves. Or, if you prefer, you could take spoonfuls of the meat with garnishes and wrap them in a softer lettuce, such as Boston, or red leaf. As always, adjust the spiciness to your own taste.
I love a good cesear salald. Especially if its got another of my favorite ingredients in it, shrimp! I stumbled across this recipe and tweaked it to my own likings. If you don't want to use shrimp, you can use cubed chicken breast or sliced roast beef instead.
This is a delicious summer salad. I use ready-made Sweet Chilli Sauce, and to give the salad interest, I use a variety of different lettuce leaves, some chopped spring onions (shallots), parsley, watercress, cherry tomatoes halved, and sometimes some chervil.
This recipe was in the 'food' section of our local paper a couple of weeks ago. We made it while on a camping trip, a very refreshing and different salad! It has a definite Greek taste and is very low-cal! Time does not include marinating (if you chose to do so).

I actually despise canned tuna. However, it is so economical that I am constantly searching for recipes that make it tolerable to me. I went back for 3 helpings of this one! It came from Betty Crocker's New Cookbook. Cook time is actually the recommended chill time. Don't forget to plan on time to cook the pasta.
