Salad with Creamy Dressing, Tuna, Walnuts and Cheese
Crusty Whole Grain Bread

Cooking time:   15 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      Lettuce is in full season now. One of the pleasures and benefits of seasonal cooking is summer salads that require none.... cooking, that is.  Make the dressing, assemble the salad and eat. Serve with some crusty, whole grain bread or a French 'stick' (skinny baguette). 
Because the walnuts are dry and somewhat tannic, I use a bit more dressing than usual.  

Salad with Creamy Dressing, Tuna, Walnuts and Cheese

Total time: 15 minutes
  This is a light, heart-healthy summer salad, with walnuts, greens, and a tangy dressing made with Greek Yogurt, reminiscent of 'Ranch', but lower in calories and all natural.
