Who knew a tuna salad could be so flavorful? This is a tasty salad that we will be enjoying again. I made as written using a kid kind of a big chop instead of mincing as I was serving as a salad atop of romaine lettuce. Thanks for the post.

A very tasty salad - the fruitiness of the olive oil went so well with the other ingredients. I used a solid chunk albacore tuna, and it was really attractive with the large flakes of tuna. Lovely with some crusty bread.

Wonderful lunch! I used 1 3 oz can of tuna and halved the rest of the ingredients and tossed it with some leftover salad (no dressing) and this was a wonderful lunch. The only change I made was using dried basil and a few pickled jalapenos (no chili). Thanks for sharing this wonderful salad!
