Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is such a quick, easy and tasty salad to prepare. The cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce add a fresh taste. The tuna makes this a bit hearty. Great for a simple lunch, light dinner or even for a cookout.

Note: I used 5 oz. cans of tuna.


2 c
plain corkscrew pasta, cooked and drained
2 Tbsp
crushed parsley flakes
2 c
chopped cucumber
2 c
tomato, wedges or chopped
3 can(s)
tuna, drained
1 bag(s)
lettuce mix
buttermilk ranch salad dressing


1Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse with cool water, and drain. Toss gently with parsley flakes and enough dressing to coat lightly. Spread evenly in bottom of a large serving bowl.
2Spread lettuce mix on top the cooked pasta in the bowl.
3Chop the cucumber and layer over the lettuce.
4Drain tuna, flake gently with a fork and distribute evenly over the top of the cucumber in the bowl.
5Top with tomato. Serve with dressing.

NOTE: I've also served this salad "buffet style" for casual parties, allowing everyone to create their own stack :)
