Notes









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.
