Tuna Garbanzo Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ksduffster

I love the light spicy flavor of the dressing on this salad. The original recommends using premium tuna (the kind that comes in a glass jar) but my grocer doesn't carry premium fish (at least I have never seen it there), so I just use good old Charlie the Tuna. If fresh arugula (rocket) is not available, use another soft green. I like to sub baby spinach or mixed field greens. From Cooking Light March 2007.

I was looking for an excuse to use my smoked paprika and this was a good venue for it. I love tuna with chick peas and this was a good lunch, thanks!
