This salad is so good even the pre-schoolers ate it. It's wonderful for a quick, easy meal. Start stacking!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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.
