for me seafood and some items are advisable from a health point of view-will try to get it a large seafood restaurent-still remember those days 39 years ago when used to have seafood like crab,cuttle fish etc-you made my day-a perfect morning start-its early morning in india-good morning.

This a great summer salad that you can serve as a meal. It makes a smaller amount than most pasta salads, so it is great for two people.

A few months ago I gave birth to my second baby girl. During my pregnancy I made this recipe and was one happy mama. Next time I am going to use pepper jack cheese for a little heat!

Very good salad for a hot day. I made it as written, but next time would leave out the cheese...it really wasn't necessary.

I make this salad all the time. Of course I have to double by 4 to 6 because I take it to functions. I don't really modify it much. I do make extra dressing because overnight it can get a little dry.

I made it with finely diced 1/2 a poached chicken breast instead of tuna and shredded cheddar cheese instead of cubed and it turned out just as yummy as when I made it just like the recipe!
