This was a really great tuna, but found the onion too much. I had onion breath from this. Otherwise it was really great, and I sure did appreciate it for the Museum Day outing I had today.

This is a fresh tasting tuna salad. I used tuna in vegetable broth, shallots for the onion, flat leaf parsley, freshly squeezed lemon juice, unrefined extra virgin olive oil per preference, sea salt & freshly ground black pepper. I served it on baby spinach with halved grape tomatoes for a light lunch. Made for ZWT6 Germany/Benelux region, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.

This is a nice change from a mayo based tuna salad. Only thing was we thought the lemon was just a bit too much! At least for our taste. Will make again but with less lemon. I also used a red onion. Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds.
