This super easy salad is a refreshing blend of fresh herbs, tuna, and greens. Substitute diced chicken for the tuna if you like. It's a great summer meal.

I am so glad I happened upon this recipe as it's already become a mealtime favourite and it's so quick to prepare! This year I tossed my flowers in favour of herb in some planters this year and am always on the lookout for new and different full-meal salad ideas so this recipe was a perfect fit. However I do admit that reading the ingredients I was sort of thinking hmmmm...well I have to say the flavour particularly on account of the lemon and mint is simply outstanding! This recipe is quite flexible as well. Sometimes I substitute red onions and add a tbsp of balsamic vinegar to the dressing. Thank you very much for sharing this! Read More

This was OK. I added kalamata olives and two roasted red peppers for colour which helped but ultimately I don't think I'll make this again. Read More

I loved this salad! I was looking for an alternative to a mayonnaise-based salad. This really hit the bill! I put it over spinach and it was a hit with the family! I used less than 1/4 cup olive oil for a little less fat but didn't want to make any other changes. Thanks! Read More

Excellent mingling of flavors. I used solid white albacore tuna - best ever. My only changes were plain goat feta and an English cucumber since they were all I had. My 11 year old very picky eater loved this and keeps asking me to make it again. Read More

This salad is really good. I made it exactly as directed. My coworker and I ate it for 3 days. It was even better on day 2 and 3! Thanks for sharing this nice fresh dish. Read More

So amazing! Grilled tuna steaks set the salad off perfectly. Making the dressing ended up being so much better than drowning the salad in dressing from a jar. Read More

10.11.16 The recipe author suggested chicken as an option to tuna and since I had some cooked chicken in the fridge that s what I used. The tart lemon-mint dressing is what really makes this salad. I used regular sheep s milk feta not garlic and herb and didn t miss it since those flavors already are in the salad dressing. I added some spinach leaves and also some roasted red pepper for a pop of color. Nice dinner salad which we enjoyed with a bowl of soup. Read More

This was so refreshing and delicious. I have had salad with tuna and it's just a salad but the lemon juice and mint made all the difference! I did omit the parsley and used spring mix instead and added cherry tomatoes and shredded carrots. Read More
