Author Notes

A fast and easy salad that can serve as lunch or a light dinner. This can easily be adjusted to make more, or less. I prefer to use preserved meyer lemons, but regular preserved lemons work just as well. —Kristy Mucci

  • 1 large bulb fennel, shaved on a mandoline
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon preserved lemon, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil-packed tuna
