"This main dish salad is perfect for lunch or a light dinner. Dill, quinoa, and Parmesan cheese are optional. I make the salad without these, then add them to change things up a bit when we eat the leftovers. Serve by itself or over lettuce."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I thought this was delightful, and so good for you! I did use the quinoa. It was very simple to put together and kept well as leftovers.
Perfect salad. Light and refreshing. The tuna and beans add just the right amount of protein for a perfect meal. The only change I made was adding some pepper. My daughter and I both loved this. Thank you Marcia for sharing.
I used red kidney beans in this. The flavors somewhat compete for attention, maybe the vinegar or the mustard should be reduced. More onion might have made this better. Overall, the taste was fine, but this didn't have a WOW factor.
