Always seeking more interesting variations to the standard tuna salad, this one caught my eye. The flavor blend here is really wonderful and work well together; bright and crisp lending themselves to the tuna without competing against it. I used romaine rather than arugula but agree that the slight peppery taste of the latter would have worked a bit better. Thanks.
