    Tried this on a hot summer night and found it very refreshing. Needed some spice, so I added my favorite salad dressing to the mix. Balsamic vinegar mixed with the olive oil could have done the same for it.

    I also thought it needed spices. Added garlic, dill weed. Added a splash of basmatic vinegar & still thought it needed something to elevate flavor

    This was just okay. Maybe I'll ty the other reviewer's suggestion of adding vinegar, garlic, etc.

    Delicious salad! I didn't add the avocado but did add diced tomatoes. Thanks, Heather, for sharing this recipe.

    I found this recipe to be a bit bland as written. I used cilantro instead of parsley, since I was out. After discovering the lack of flavor, I added a bit of garlic, cayenne, and balsamic vinegar to try to give it some flavor. Red wine vinegar or other flavored vinegars would be a good addition as well. Possibly more red onion as well. As written above, it's a good healthy tuna salad recipe, just needs some spices and other additional flavorings to kick it up a bit.
