Traditionally, salad is a side dish containing leafy vegetables and accompanying the main course. We all know that. But for some centuries now, the salad has been taking the front stage and served as the main course.

 

Such is this tuna ravioli salad. Still under the impression of my European vacation, although it’s been three weeks since my return, I wanted a light recipe that would take me back to one of the countries we visited. Besides, tuna is great in salads!

 

This salad is great to take to summer parties, picnics, or just outside to your backyard and feed your hard-working husband, drizzled with lemon juice**, and sprinkled with fresh ground pepper.

 

**the salad, not the husband. Lemon juice brings out flavors in pasta.
