Expert Tips

  • For a yummy vegetarian version, replace the tuna with feta cheese.
  • Swap half a pound of cooked baby shrimp for the tuna for a fun change.
  • Raw onions are wonderful in salads, but sometimes they can be too pungent. Rinsing the cut onion with cold water will remove some of the pungency.
  • If the salad loses a bit of creaminess, stir in a little low-fat milk.
