Recipe by Chef Menel

Perfect light summer meal! My family begs for this! If you prefer vegetarian, just skip the tuna!

This has a great taste, I enjoyed the buttermilk dressing instead of mayo. I do think it needs more tuna, would double next time, otherwise great recipe. Makes lots, I halved the recipe, but still have lots of leftovers.
