Mediterranean Tomato and Tuna Salad

A Big Daddy original this is absolutely perfect for lunches, or as a side dish with summertime meals.  If you don't care for tuna it is also delicious with shredded chicken breast. 

1 pint   

cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced in half

1-6 ounce can   

solid white tuna in water, broken into bite size chunks

cup   

crumbled feta cheese

cup chopped parsley

1 teaspoon   

dried oregano

salt and pepper to taste

Vinaigrette

cup   

extra virgin olive oil

teaspoon   

dried oregano

1 teaspoon   

Balsamic vinegar

teaspoon   

salt

1 teaspoon   

freshly ground black pepper

2 cloves   

garlic, smashed

Whisk the oil and vinegar together in a bowl.  Add remaining vinaigrette ingredients, stir to combine and place in fridge for at least one half hour to allow the flavors to meld.  Toss salad ingredients in a bowl and place in fridge until ready to serve.

When ready to serve strain the vinaigrette into the salad and toss to combine.  Adjust for seasonings and garnish with parsley.
