    What a perfect dinner for a hot day! The bright flavors are such a nice change from your typical tuna salad. I did swap the bell pepper for cucumbers due to my kids' preference, and quite honestly I forgot to add the oil (duh!) and it was still delicious. Thanks so much for a refreshing change of pace! Made for ZWT 9, Gourmet Goddesses.

    Definitely NOT your ordinary tuna salad! This is out of this world yummy! I made this just as written, but cut back on the oil just a wee bit. The fresh parsley and garlic added such a fresh flavor. Everything about this is delicious. Thanx!

    Well, this is a nice change from the usual tuma salad that I'm used to. I love the addition of olives and sherry wine vinegar. Will definetely be making this in the near future.
