A "budget" recipe from Eating Well Sept/Oct 2010. An easy way to jazz up canned tuna! I really enjoyed it with a side of edamame for dinner!

Outstanding! My family loved this recipe. The dressing gave the tuna and salad great flavor. My family gave the salad a five and also the dressing a five, so if I could give it a 10 I would. Will be making this again. It is easy to make and a quick meal for busy days. Tripled the recipe for a main meal. Followed the recipe, except for the sugar snap peas. Forgot to pick them up when I went to the store. Also used albacore tuna. Made for ZWT7~Emerald City Shakers.
- 1⁄4 cup rice vinegar (may sub lemon juice)
- 3 tablespoons canola oil (I only used 2 T)
- 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil (I only used 1/2 T)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sugar (I used Splenda)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- 2 (6 ounce) canswater-packed chunk light tuna, drained
- 1 cup sliced sugar snap pea (may sub snow peas)
- 2 scallions, sliced
- 6 cups thinly sliced napa cabbage
- 4 radishes, sliced (I used red bell pepper instead)
- 1⁄4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (I used sunflower seeds instead)
- freshly ground pepper
