This is a good easy recipe. I added some California mix veggies and thinly sliced onion. Can also use low fat Italian dressing. I also made this with ham and/or chicken.

Yes it is a crowd pleaser and it could not be easier. Instead of tuna, I added small cut-up chicken from the grill and 1000 Island Dressing. I wanted to add veggies but I brought it to a pot luck with kids and the kids LOVED it since there was nothing green.
