"I made this up while on phase 1 of the South Beach Diet. I was trying to keep fresh cut up veggies on hand and I love tuna so this was quick to throw together when I didn't want to think about what to eat. It is also very colorful...I love green, purple and red together. I also love the spicy tuna with the crunch and flavors of the fresh veggies. My favorites are radish sprouts and purple cabbage...sometimes I'll eat it with just those."

"It was love at first bite. The tuna mixed with lemon pepper and mayonnaise makes the best dressing for this supper healthy salad. We loved the way all the fresh flavors shard the spot light. The tuna add to this salad with out taking over and was not loaded down with mayonnaise (hooray). We will be making this a lot. Thanks so much for the post."
"This tuna over a salad was doing it's own dance to the table. This recipe came in handy as I made some lentil sprouts so this was a perfect marriage of really earth, fresh tastes. I knew I was going to love the creole seasoning and I was right. I had a bit of cabbage, and green peppers but other then that stayed true to the recipe although for my portion, I added some extra creole spice as I love all things spicy. Dennis took this to work with him with a roll on the side, and he adored this as well. So happy, tuna is the best! Thank you Engrossed!"
"This was wonderful! I had never thought about eating tuna this way before. I love radishes and used them as you suggested. We don't have a Best Foods around here so I used Light Miracle Whip instead. Thank you for sharing this recipe!"
"I loved the visual and flavor explosion on this quick lunch. While I often add pepper and onions to tuna I had not considered the spicier creole. Not only did it worked well, it provided a great contrast to the natural sweetness of the vegetables (especially the peppers and cherry tomatoes). I used Hellman's light and loved it. Thanks for sharing!"
"I loved this recipe. I left out the sprouts because I don't care for them and I used low fat mayo. Delicious."
"MAde this for lunch a couple days ago - TOTALLY delicious. One of my favorite way to eat tuna!! I usually did it this way (without the purple cabbage) - so thanks for posting one of my FAVS Engrossed!! This is in my FAV easy lunches (and it is healthy too!!)"
