Prepare this salad a few hours in advance to allow the flavours to blend and mellow. You may use other fresh herbs instead of dill or just more parsley if you like. You may leave out the tuna if serving as a side dish with meat. I like the fresh flavour of this salad. It keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days.

- 1 sweet red pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 cucumber, peeled and diced

Very tasty and simple to make. I will defintely be making this one regularly!
We LOVED it! And so simple and quick to make and moreover so flavourful! I eye-stimated the quantities and was generous with the mustard! I used fresh dill and parsley. DH is not a big fan of 'cold' pasta so he had his without the pasta :rolleyes: We loved the dressing! I shall definitely try it next time as a dip as well! Thank you, Cookin-jo, for sharing your wonderful recipe!
A lovely basic and quick fixin tuna salad. Used dried dill but will cut back on the amount next time as it over powered the other flavours
