This refreshing tuna Greek salad puts an added dose of protein into your traditional greek salad. Make a quick and easy Greek dressing to toss this salad, or use your favorite store-bought dressing. Either way, this salad comes together in just a few minutes.


INGREDIENTS


• 8 cups mixed romaine and red leaf lettuce torn into bite-sized pieced

• 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved

• 1 yellow pepper sliced

• 1 cucumber halved and sliced

• 2 cups cooked pasta such as fusilli, rotini or cavatappi

• ½ cup kalamata olives pitted

• ¼ red onion sliced

• ½ cup feta cheese crumbled

• ⅓ cup Greek salad dressing store-bought or see below

• 2 (2.6-ounce) packages StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Yellowfin Tuna with Sun-dried Tomatoes



GREEK DRESSING:


• 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

• 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

• 2 tablespoons fresh oregano chopped

• ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil

• salt and freshly ground black pepper



INSTRUCTIONS



• Soak the sliced onion in water for about 10 minutes while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. (This will remove the harsh flavor and aftertaste of the onions.) Drain the onions and dry well with a clean kitchen towel.

• Place the romaine and red leaf lettuces in a large salad bowl. Add the StarKist Selects E.V.O.® Yellowfin Tuna with Sun-dried Tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, yellow pepper, cucumber, pasta, kalamata olives and red onions.

• To make the dressing, whisk the vinegar, Dijon mustard and oregano together in a bowl. Add the oregano and whisk in the olive oil. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

• Drizzle the dressing over the top of the salad and toss the ingredients together. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve.
