Expert Tips

  • Rainy day? You can also use the broiler for this salad. Simply place tuna on the broiler pan rack, then broil with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat using times in recipe as a guide.
  • The best place to find fresh mozzarella is at the deli in your grocery store. They may even be willing to slice it for you.
  • Line the serving plate with large fresh spinach leaves before you arrange the tomatoes. The spinach will provide a pretty layer and is a nice addition to the salad.
