EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Solid white canned tuna is large pieces of albacore tuna. The mild flavor of albacore tuna blends well with the tangy feta dressing in this salad.

Plain feta cheese plus 1 tablespoon of chopped sun-dried tomatoes and 1 teaspoon of dried basil leaves can be used in place of the tomato and basil feta cheese in this recipe.

Serve this flavorful main dish salad with crisp breadsticks and iced tea.
