Gluten Free Tuna on Lettuce

GF Tuna on lettuce

Comment: Tuna is a popular item around here regardless of the season and this recipe is especially tasty when combined with the lettuces, tomato, cucumber, red onion and dressing. Tuna has its own distinctive taste and adding an olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing smoothes it out and gives it just the right tanginess.
