Canned tuna in oil is great for quick meals like the Tuna, Escarole, and Chickpea Salad with Warm Herb-Garlic Vinaigrette. We were curious about which supermarket tuna tastes best, so we collected all the canned and jarred tuna we could find in our local supermarkets and tried them side by side. Without knowing which came from a can or a jar, we overwhelmingly preferred the jarred tuna samples (specifically the Sclafani and Tonnino brands shown). The jarred tuna contained bigger pieces, was richer tasting, and had better texture. So next time we reach for canned tuna, it may very well come from a jar.
