1/3 cup olive oil
3 tbs lemon juice
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 tsp tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp anise seed or fennel
1/4 tso salt
1/2 lb feta cheese crumbled or 1 cup ricotta or cottage cheese
1 can tuna, drained
2 tomatoes chopped coarsely
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 2 tbs dried
1/4 cup pine nuts or slivered almonds
