So good to make ahead and have for lunches throughout the week! Mine was a little watery so will use a little less lemon juice next time.

This recipe uses light and refreshing ingredients. It?s just what I was looking for to avoid oven use during warm summer days and yet still create a nutritious and filling meal. I featured it in my blog - http://danasfoodblog.com/?p=905 .

Great -- and the longer you leave it refrigerated the better it gets!

Excellent recipe! Dressing is nice and light, yet lemony and dilly. I used red pepper instead of cucmber and a heaping tbsp dried dill for the fresh. You may want to add less for a less intense dill flavour. Will definately make this again. Barley. Try it. You will never have rice again!

Excellent recipe, thank you. Amazing blend of flavors and a light dressing, just perfect. I did not have fresh dill so I used 2 teaspoons of dried dill worked fine. Definitely a keeper.

This is one of my favorite lunches to pack, and I've had a few variations of it (sometimes we replace the cucumbers with pickles, for example). This has great texture and a very fresh flavor. I don't seem to get tired of it (and that's saying something, because I don't often repeat recipes). Thanks for sharing this!

This is a great summer weather salad. The taste is very fresh, and light, although a bit too lemony for my tastes so I will cut back just a bit next time. This is the first time I've had a tuna salad without mayo or Miracle Whip - it's very tasty. I did omit the tomatoes because I do not like tomatoes and tuna together, but otherwise followed the recipe. I will definitely make this a lot during the summer. Thanks for posting.
