    Georgiapea's Note:

    I'm not sure why this is deemed 'Italian' - I mean I know it has basil and balsamic vinegar, but I don't think it's actually from Italy. Regardless it is really a delicious and simple salad. Every time I make it, I wonder why I don't do it more often! **cook time is cool time**

      This is good and crunchy salad if you are looking for a different way to make tuna. I don't think it would go well on a sandwich, but eaten alone or on crackers is very good. The water chestnuts are not essential, if you can't find them, but they add more crunch. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
