Tuna, Artichoke, and Roasted Red Pepper Salad

A medley of Mediterranean flavors perks up humble albacore tuna in this no-cook dish. It can be made ahead for a lunch-to-go or prepared for dinner. Just add the spinach and toss before serving. For sandwich variations, stuff the tuna mixture into whole wheat pita halves, or spread it between two baguette halves.
