Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • If you dont have fresh tomatoes, try serving this salad on other vegetables. Slice a cucumber in half length-wise, scoop out the seeds and serve the salad in the cucumber boat. You can also try it on celery sticks.
  • This salad also tastes great on a lettuce salad or in a sandwich. Scoop some of the prepared tuna directly on a lettuce salad and serve chopped tomatoes if you have them, Or serve the tuna as a filling on whole wheat bread or a wrap, adding sliced tomatoes and lettuce.
