The ingredients in that dressing tick all the taste boxes for me, so that's a definite for me to try. I am not a fan of tuna though, so I would probably switch that out for a baked, chopped salmon fillet.

Thanks for sharing and have a good week :)

Pocas cosas hay más ricas y sanas que una ensalada, además de lo socorrida, variada y fácil que es. Todo son ventajas con ella. Muy rica la que nos traes hoy.

Tuna was the last meat I ditched from my life some fifteen or more years ago. I do love me peas! I made shroom stuffed hokkaido squash for lunch today.

This looks great -- a nice change from tuna/mayo salad. And we always have tuna on hand, so it's an easy dish to whip up in a hurry. Good stuff -- thanks.
