Tuna Salad with Mozzarella and Tomato

      The only cooking involved is boiling the eggs.  Simple, mid-week dinner. This will use the rest of the mozzarella from Friday.

Tuna Salad with Mozzarella and Tomatoes

Total time: 20 minutes
    A cold salad can be just the thing for a hot summer evening.  Other than the eggs, nothing is cooked; just assemble and serve.  The small mozzarella balls are great for tossing with a salad; if you can't find them, just roughly chop half of a larger, whole mozzarella.
