Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Rating: 4.44 stars
I was bored and hungry, and wondering what I was going to do with some left-over pesto and some pesky sun-dried tomatoes that I wanted to get out of the fridge. I'm also a low-carber, so pasta was out of the question. It may seem kind of a weird combination, but the sun-dried tomatoes gave the tuna salad a nice sweetness and added an interesting texture.

Seafood And Cabbage Salad

Rating: 4.6 stars
This is a beautiful and delicious salad that was popular in our salad bar when we had our restaurant. Red and green vegetables are mixed together with the imitation crab, and then tossed with a light and lemony dressing.

Warm Shrimp Salad

Rating: 4.52 stars
A salad made of butter lettuce and shrimp sauteed in butter and lemon. Use your favorite salad dressing or vinaigrette, and vary the amount to your liking.

Zesty Tuna Salad

Rating: 4.13 stars
This takes boring canned tuna and adds a little zing to it. Dill pickle relish works great, too.

Southern Tuna Macaroni Salad

Creamy from eggs and mayonnaise, tangy and acidic from mustard, pickles and chow chow, with a nice crunch from celery and onion. The Cajun spice just rounds it out with a blend of spices, the pimentos add a pop of color and sweetness, and tuna complements and ties all the flavors together in this Southern macaroni salad. Could top with some parsley for added color! Put this in a tortilla or melt some cheese on toast and make an open-faced sandwich!

Healthier Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Rating: 4.75 stars
A very refreshing and light snack or meal! This dish makes a great Mediterranean alternative to your stereotypical tuna salad made with mayonnaise. Serve with whole grain crackers.

Lobster Salad

Rating: 4.43 stars
This luscious and easy to prepare salad features succulent lobster tossed with yellow bell peppers, crunchy celery and spicy onions all in a creamy base.

Lemony Dill Salmon Pasta Salad

Rating: 4.33 stars
Most pasta salads have a mayonnaise base, which I thought was too heavy for a salmon pasta salad. I swapped in a vinaigrette of sorts, with just a dusting of freshly grated Parmesan cheese for a touch of indulgence. It's the perfect way to use any leftover salmon.
