tuna pasta salad

I’ve been enjoying this salad on a daily basis now, so I thought I’d introduce to you the recipe behind one of my favorite healthy creations from Annenberg.  The great thing about this salad is that it is wonderfully filling (thanks to the pasta) and the dash of white vinegar adds just the right touch of acidity to this lightly salted mix, which when combined with blue or feta cheese will make your mouth water.  Mmm.
