    A very tasty dish, the flavor of the tuna salad with the marinated green beans is one you just cant miss. Chilling in the refrigerator overnight is best but could be ready to serve in one to two hours.

      Yes this did sound like a good recipe. I made it with fresh tuna as a pizza on the grill. I made a herb tomato pizza crust with cherry tomatoes that had been oven dried with garlic and herbs plus a sprinkling of Penzey's Tuscan Sunset seasoning. I made the tomato salsa but did not add the tuna and I did the herbed green beans and red pepper strips. I grilled the pizza crust and when it was almost done grilled the tuna medium rare. I lifted the green beans and peppers from the dressing and piled on the crust then covered with the sliced tuna and then the tomato salsa on top. Served it with a Rose' quite tasty.

      this is one of those salads that should be sold in a fancy deli, I did some amount adjustments, this only gets better the more time it is chilled, simply delicious and one I will make again very soon, thanks for sharing Lori, this was made for the Think Pink event!

      This is a truly gorgeous salad, both in appearance and in flavor. I did get a bit confused over the instructions regarding the fresh basil; in step 1 it seems to indicate that all of it is used in the tuna portion, but then in step 2 we're told to use "remaining fresh basil" in the herb vinegar; no problem, I used 1/4 cup with the tuna and 1/2 cup with the herb vinegar and it was wonderful. Don't overcook your beans (I cooked mine about 5 minutes) because you do want them crisp-tender. Served this on grilled ciabatta (sliced in half). I will be doing this again: thanks for posting!
