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

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. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Spring Salad Stack-Up

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook 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.
  2. Spread lettuce mix on top the cooked pasta in the bowl.
  3. Chop the cucumber and layer over the lettuce.
  4. Drain tuna, flake gently with a fork and distribute evenly over the top of the cucumber in the bowl.
  5. Top with tomato. Serve with dressing.

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