this was exactly what i wanted, very tasty...i wanted kind of a simple nicoise salad type tuna salad and this was it. after tasting the initial combination with only 1 tblspn of olive oil, i did add garbanzo beans for fiber. eaten with low-fat triscuits made for a very nutritious, low-cal, low-fat light lunch/snack.

This turned out okay, but I would recommend a bit less garlic and half the lemon juice, or a bit of lime juice for extrea tang. It tasted good and I woul reccomend it on Saltines. **Ratica**

This is soooo great! I wanted to try something different with canned tuna and I have made this several times now.
