    The salad was simple to make, but it lacked flavor balance. There were so many tart/tangy elements like the feta, lemon, garlic and tuna, but nothing sweet/savory to balance that out. It needs a bit of tweaking. The husband liked it, but then again, he enjoys tangy/tart foods more than I do. - 31 May 2013
