This salad reminds me of summer.
It is a beautiful collection of colors and flavors.
I guess with the bitter winter weather we have been having I was looking for something bright and refreshing. We have enjoyed our share of soups but a warm salad is nice too.
This was my first time using fresh tuna. In the past I have used a good quality canned tuna with success too but the fresh tuna, I felt, out shined the canned tuna--hands down.
I mention both varieties because I know that fresh tuna can be expensive and it adds a few more steps to the dish because you have to bake it separately. I just wanted those that have a limited amount of time, resources and funds available to them, this can still be made using different options with delicious results. In fact, you could easily switch out the tuna for a different kind of fish.
I hope were ever you live that you were able to fair well with the cold temperatures in your neck of the woods.
