Tuna Salad in the Round


Make a main-meal salad lunch or light dinner for 2 with a can of tuna and a ring mold. For the ring mold, use a 4-1/2-inch-diameter mini springform pan or an empty can with the top and bottom cut out (a 28-ounce can is about 4 inches in diameter).


  • 1/2 cup roasted peppers (canned in water)

  • 1 (6-ounce) can white tuna packed in water, drained and flaked

  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion

  • 2 Roma or plum tomatoes, seeds removed, cut in strips

  • 1/2 avocado, sliced

  • 2 cups spring mix or shredded lettuce

  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes

  • 1 carrot, peeled into strips

  • Optional: small ripe olives, pepperoncini (Italian peppers), or artichoke hearts, for garnish


Place a mini springform pan (without the bottom) or other ring mold on a serving plate. Line with the roasted peppers and spread the tuna over it. Next, layer it with the chopped onion, then the tomato strips, pressing down lightly on each layer. Top with the avocado slices. Carefully remove the mold.

Arrange the spring mix or other shredded lettuce around the "cake" and decorate the plate with small tomatoes and carrot strips. Add optional garnishes, if desired.
