This main dish salad is perfect for lunch or a light dinner. Dill, quinoa, and Parmesan cheese are optional. I make the salad without these, then add them to change things up a bit when we eat the leftovers. Serve by itself or over lettuce.

Perfect salad. Light and refreshing. The tuna and beans add just the right amount of protein for a perfect meal. The only change I made was adding some pepper. My daughter and I both loved this. Thank you Marcia for sharing. Read More

More salt. Needs some crunch: pickles or cukes. Read More

I used red kidney beans in this. The flavors somewhat compete for attention maybe the vinegar or the mustard should be reduced. More onion might have made this better. Overall the taste was fine but this didn't have a WOW factor. Read More

This was so good and so easy to make. I omitted the quinoa simply because I don t like it and used fresh mozzarella balls instead of Parmesan. The dressing is fantastic and the whole thing is very filling. Makes a great lunch Read More

Loved it! Very flavorable, and very filling even with a small portion. I wrapped it in romain lettuce, gave it a nice crunch. Read More
