Use fresh tuna to dress up this salad or canned tuna when you're in a hurry. Either way, it packs plenty of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, along with lots of other healthy nutrients—and delicious flavors!

  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves, washed and torn in bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 tomato, cut in wedges
  • 10-12 olives, cut into rings

  • 1-2 ounces feta, crumbled
  • Onion, thinly sliced in rings
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Oregano Vinaigrette:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (or 1/2 tablespoon fresh oregano)
