I like salads with a little umph and interest. This tuna Greek salad takes all the ingredients you’d expect in a Greek salad and adds a boost of tuna for flavor and protein, or as I say “umph”. I’ve always liked greek salads because they have so many ingredients – the feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, onion, feta cheese, black olives, and did I mention feta cheese? All of those ingredients, tossed with some pasta and/or lettuce makes a very interesting salad that goes way beyond your everyday hum drum salad.
The only down side to me about a Greek salad is when the red onions are so harsh that you taste them for days afterwards. So, I always soak my sliced onion in water before incorporating them into the salad. That does the trick of reducing the harsh flavor of red onion and its aftertaste.
