Finally! I  have set my mind  to a good diet conscious salad, this time. I thought why not  with tuna as it says only 60 calories per serving! After a lavishing Easter meal it was really necessary… I remembered this recipe, a fresh spicy salad, read in a magazine, but which one?? I have tons of magazines with recipes…

I suspect many foodies, home cooks, and food bloggers are like me. We read a great recipe in a magazine, waiting at dentist lounge… or somewhere else, then trying to remember the basic of it, making some imperfect quick notes on the cell phone, finally getting totally confused when preparing it!

So I dropped the notes, and decided to do it on my own. Fresh, a touch of spices, a good  hint of lemon for the proteinic tuna, not to be missed!!

It felt so great afterwards, I have been good for a day!!………

How to make it:

Prepare tuna, peel and chop onion very thin, Wash and hull strawberries, pat them dry, cut in half or slice.

Note: This salad is outstanding without tuna!! Replace the lemon juice with 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar. Even more zesty and spicy. Delicious!
