Mediterranean Medley Salad Recipe

This refreshing alternative to pasta salad is perfect for casual summer luncheons. "You can serve it as a main dish with the tuna...or without it for a nice rice side," suggests Merwyn Garbini of Tucson, Arizona. "Sometimes, I substitute reduced-fat mayonnaise for the olive-oil".
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 can (6 ounces) light water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
