    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are wonderful to serve for a lunch, or a light dinner, great for summertime, as they don't require any cooking. They can be made several hours in advance and refrigerated, just bring almost to room temperature and serve.

      This is a fantastic summer recipe! I saw one similar on TV but didn't get the details written out. Thank you for posting! I also used tuna packed in water...and I substituted sunflower seeds for the pine nuts. Not a bad switch!

      We really enjoyed this dish! It is fresh tasting, and full of wonderful flavors which compliment the tuna. I used albacore packed in water, with an extra dash of lemon juice (to cut back on calories and cholesterol). The recipe is easy to prepare, and easy to read. Really a wonderful recipe that I can recommend. Thanks, Kitten for another wonderful treat!
