    dividend's Note:

    This is a very simple, mild tuna salad. Prepping the onion as directed removes the raw onion bite. I like this on a bed of green salad. [Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (Marcella Hazen)]

      This is essentially the salad I made today except that my tuna was in water, my recipe called for 3 tablespoons of olive oil and I used 1 1/2 and it only called for 1 T of red wine vinegar and I used 1 1/2 T. My husband and I enjoyed this for a saturday lunch. As I look at other white been and tuna salads here at 'zaar, I can see that many things can be added to this salad to make it more interesting but this basic version was tasty and my husband said, "Make it again."

      Great recipe, while trying to avoid mayonaise. In place of the onion, I substitued leeks and did not rinse in cold water, which worked perfectly. Radishes were also added.
