Tuna with pepper, tomato, mango, feta, Salad with a Balsamic Dressing

Now that the days are really beginning to stretch, it really does feel like summer is just around the corner. There nothing like a tasty salad to remind you of this, even if the weather is a bit of a mix bag of late. This lovely light and refreshing salad is a healthy alternate to the typical tuna mayo salad. The lovely moist tuna, along with the crunchy pepper, is nicely balanced by the sweet mango, and feta cheese. This is also great a side dish with dinner, or great for a pot luck or summer BBQ.

Approx. preparation time: 12-15 minutes.

I'm a mild-mannered scientist by day and a food enthusiast by night. My idea for this blog was (with the assistance of my fantastic boyfriend, Fabian) to share some recipes of my own creation and other recipes that I have personally found to work out well and all going well, some posts on the great local food we have in Ireland.

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog like yours require
    a massive amount work? I am brand new to operating a blog
    but I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
