I added some diced radish and a can of albacore tuna ... great, light dinner out of ingredients I had on hand. Fresh and satisfying!

I have been making this for my lunch at work, only I omitted the oil, used apple cider vinegar, and used cabbage instead of lettuce. (I also add fresh cracked pepper like Rita) So yummy!

This is so simple and so easy it couldn`t be good? BUT It so was! The only change I did was use apple cider vinegar and lots of fresh cracked pepper. Thanks!!!
