    IngridH's Note:

    This is a variation of a recipe from "Mediterranean Light". I've omitted a few ingredients (tomatoes and lettuce), and added a few of my own. If you don't eat eggs, you can leave them out with no problem. The original recipe called for a 6 1/2 ounce can of water packed tuna, I just prefer to work with fresh. Use whatever is easiest for you.

    1. 1
      In a mixing bowl, toss the sliced onion with 2 tablespoons of the red wine vinegar. Add enough water to the bowl to cover the onion. Let sit for 30 minutes, then drain.
    2. 2
      Season the tuna steak with salt and pepper. Cook to your desired doneness on a grill, broiler, or sauté pan. Let cool enough to handle. Break the tuna into bite sized pieces.
    3. 3
      Add the tuna and remaining ingredients to the drained onion, tossing gently to thoroughly combine the ingredients.
    4. 4
      Taste, and reseason if needed.
    5. 5
      Serve immediately, or chill and serve later.

      Made this salad as per the recipe, although I did drain & rinse the kidney beans & cut the salt back to 1/4 teaspoon! Worked out well for us & we had a wonderfully flavorful salad! Many thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      Great salad! I used a can of albacore and subbed the kidney with cannellini beans. Served over romaine and campari tomatoes, with a few chunks of avocado and some kalamata olives. Perfect meal! Thanks for sharing, Ingrid! ***Make for PRMR***
