This vibrant salad has all the elements of a traditional salad and then some.

Our Fresh Tuna Salad also features delicious tuna fillets that are expertly braised and flaked apart to bring a pleasant seafood flavor. The fish is then combined with our special “Top Secret” dressing to create a flavor that’s truly unforgettable.
A few notes: Before adding the tuna and dressing, be sure to give the veggies a light toss in the olive oil, salt, and pepper to bring out their delicious taste. Additionally, we recommend swapping out the red onion for a sweet yellow onion if you’re not a fan of the sharp flavor.
