This light, nutritious entree salad for two comes from Sandra Fisher of Kent, Washington. It's especially pretty served on a lettuce-lined plate for a special luncheon.

This salad is summery. Its wonderful flavors glance the taste buds gracefully. I was surprised by the mix of kidney beans and tuna. I recommend this one to anyone. No, make that everyone. Read More

I left out the olive oil and the cheese for a lighter lunch and it is fantastic. I also add some chopped cucumber. Read More

This was fantastic! I used a 15.5 oz can kidney beans to three cans of tuna; yield was three large pita sandwiches. Threw in red pepper because I had it; omitted olives and cilantro because I didn't have those. BF made his a tuna melt but I left the cheese out. Now, the DRESSING: is great! I was so tempted to throw a little mayo in for creaminess - this dressing is so much better than mayo. It may just become my standard tuna dressing. Read More

Excellent! I threw in chopped tomatoes and fresh parsley. Used shallots instead of red onion. I would double the dressing next time. Served on toasted pita. A good and healthy lunch! Read More

I omitted the cheese and used black olives. Wasn't sure which kind to use. I like the fact I will not feel guilty after eating this salad; it's healthy & simple. It's almost TOO light and refreshing, lol. Perhaps a chopped apple would help the textures. Read More

We really liked this recipe on a hot summers night. I made it because we had all the ingredients on hand. Don't know what I could have to done to make it 5 stars but it was a good solid recipe that will be a regular. Thanks! Read More
