    Loved the combo of ingredients and made an eye catching composed salad. Used my herb buttermilk dressing instead of a vinaigrette because it needed to be used up. It's on my keeper list.

    IMHO... double the salt and onion powderUse 4 tbsp. of red wine vinegar instead of 3 white wine vinegarHubby doesn't like Olives so I omitted them and used Iceberg lettuce and since I'm not fond of Tuna (hubby loves it), I rinsed it well and will use this version over and over for sure. Tested perfect for our household.
