I bought a jar of Calypso tuna in olive oil during one of my visits to Di Palo in Little Italy. It is more expensive that the tuna-in-a-can that you see in the regular supermarket so I was curious to taste the difference. First of all, the olive oil that Calypso uses tastes good on its own that I used it as the dressing for this salad. It didn’t taste like it’s been in a sealed container for who knows how long. The tuna was in three big chunks and they flaked as soon as I fluffed the meat using a fork. I ended up using the one jar for three servings of this tuna salad.
