I have a family of 9 (8 meal eaters) and this salad served plenty to have enough leftover for one hungry adult or two extra children. If you are looking for a healthy and delicious dish to bring to potluck this is it! We used this as a main meal, so it would serve many people as a side dish.

I used Young Living Dill Vitality Essential Oil to kick this salad up a 100 notches. It was so flavorful. Everyone including the small children had seconds. As a matter of fact I am craving some now. There is no lettuce in this salad, so if you have leftovers they will still be enjoyably edible. I prefer to buy tuna in olive oil, rather than soy broth.  Most soy ingredients in tuna are GMO and I try to avoid soy in products.

I had a friend from Ukraine and she used dill in her cooking liberally. It always gave her meals a homey comfort feel.  No need for an oven to feel the lovin’ in this dish.
