A simple salad, made with ordinary ingredients but packed with delicious flavors! It is also so quick to make that I kept wondering whether I had overlooked some ingredients. I used tinned tuna, as per the recipe, but now I have some fresh tuna so am going to try the salad again using the fresh fish!
