This is my standard romaine salad with tuna. It's important to use good water-packed albacore tuna-other kinds won't be very good in this. What is really nice is REAL tuna, grilled medium-rare and sliced over this--but since I bring this to lunch every day medium-rare tuna isn't practical. I put the dressing contents in a small container and put in a plastic bag, then put the lettuce in a container, with a whole tomato (I pack a knife too); feta, onions and pecans are already sprinkled on the lettuce. I include a packet of Albacore and voila--I have an easy and VERY HEALTHY lunch ready to go with no required refrigeration or heating device! I've also used packets of salmon instead of the tuna.
