    Loved this! I made the tuna mixture (sans avocado) ahead of time, then the day we had it I just cooked up the noodles, added the avocado to the tuna mixture, and ended up with a superfast weeknight meal. Thanks for posting!

    What a wonderful change of pace for tuna!!! I added extra mustard it needed some extra flavor for our taste. I did not have balsamic vinaigrette handy so I added Raspberry vinaigrette. They looked and tested great. Thank you very much for this, easy and really very nice looking recipe. I will definitely make it again! I took some pictures I intend to post them soon…

    This salad was awsome. i made it for a dinner party and every one loved it. i coulden't get fresh chives so i used dried. and i made my own balsamic vinaigrette and poured it over the greens. it really was a wonderful salad. i really do recomend this one.
    Brilliant! It's beautiful, nutritious, and delicious! Every ingredient except the pasta is anti-inflammatory. Next time I will use a tiny bit less lemon juice, half the oil, and add some chopped red onion. Thanks so much for this recipe!


I have a growing family - 3 horses, 2 dogs (1 being a Great Dane)!, 2 children, 2 cats and a boyfriend. I work quite a bit either at work or on the farm taking care of the "children" - my boyfriend is a stay at home "step-dad" to all and is a former chef so we like to find new ways to cook old foods. This year we will be growing an organic garden and I am ever so excited about it. Organics are a large part of our lives, and they can really put a strain on your pocket book!
