Relish this Italian-inspired tuna salad packed with mozzarella cheese, tomato and basil – a mild dinner made ready in 30 minutes.
To broil tuna, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide.
Italian plum tomatoes are oval, pear-shaped tomatoes. Sliced lengthwise, plum tomatoes have a unique shape, which adds interest to a salad.
Fresh mozzarella cheese is shaped into balls and kept in water or whey. Often made from whole milk, fresh mozzarella has a soft, creamy texture and a mild, sweet flavor.
One tablespoon each of olive oil and balsamic vinegar can be used in place of the balsamic vinaigrette in this salad. Whisk together the oil and vinegar and add a small amount of crushed garlic. Standard vinaigrette dressing may also be used in this salad, but the flavor will not be as full as if balsamic vinaigrette is used.
