A delicious cool salad, perfect for a hot summer supper. I used Greek Viaigrette as the dressing and just sliced the egg. THX!

This is a nice mixture of flavors, and so easy to mix up and refrigerate in advance. I used to make something similar to this as a pasta salad. Next time, I'll add some cooked pasta, and see how it turns out!

I love these tuna - bean salads. Unfortunately, the canned tuna indsutry has decided to downsize the contents to 5 ounces in New Jersey to a low of 4 34 oz in Florida.
