Reviews for Italian Tuna Salad
"I thought the flavors of the tuna and Italian dressing did not go together at all. I hardly ate this at all, though the men in the house enjoyed it. Of course, they'll eat anything. I suggest using pasta instead of the beans, or in addition to. and omitting the green olives to even make this palatable."
