MY REVIEW

Very good and very easy. I used a can of albacore tuna ...so it can be a staple of a kitchen. You can easily double this...or could probably substiture whole wheat/ or high fiber pasta to add a little extra nutrition to it. Prep time was about 30 minutes counting the time to boil the pasta.

Sounds like the best salad possible. I would recommend it any time, especially to fish lovers.
