This is a fresh tuna salad that is great for sandwiches or composed salads. Healthy fish and fats in a light, cool summer dish.
Rice vinegar is made from fermented rice. It's a staple in Asian cooking but I like to use it in other types of recipes. Because it is less acidic than most vinegars and has a soft flavor it is a great choice for recipes where you don't want as bright a vinegar flavor.
