That is correct...I don't. However, I'm pretty sure tuna and chocolate don't go together, regardless.
Chocolate-covered Tuna Bites....Mmmmm!

Honestly, I have never tried tuna and gorgonzola cheese. Try a taste sample first.

As far as the other ingredients and salad dressing it is a matter of taste. I like my tuna that is atop lettuce leaves with a mild creamy dressing like Ranch or Thousand Island. But given your ingredients, a more oil/vinegar-based dressing might be tasty - Balsamic vinaigrette, Italian, etc.

I like to put tuna in with some cooked penne pasta, olive oil (or mayo, depends on how I feel), Greek olives, oregano, basil, black pepper, chopped toasted almonds, and Parmesan cheese. Yum. I cook the pasta and put it all together and eat it right away, so it's more warm than hot, but still, yum.

For a hot meal, I like to add tuna to some hot oil in a sauce pan, add some oregano, basil and black pepper, and then pour in a good brand of tomato basil soup and a little Worcestershire sauce. I then have that as a sauce on pasta with some Parmesan or other Italian style cheese on top. Again, yum.

Hahahaha! Watch, they'll be on the menu someplace here soon. I'm thinking Tavern on the Square might put it on their appetizer list. No! Wait! This is definitely something for Pullman (on Parc).

OK I'm having tuna, shells, canned diced tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and red onions. It's decent.

If you're feeling lazy, you can just mix it into a plain ol' macaroni salad with mayo, and with a splash of vinegar ..... perhaps some other salad fixins if you start to feel inspired, especially chopped onions, maybe pickles or tomatoes or cukes too.

This is also very good if you are on a low income.

A neighbor of mine use to put a can of tuna in with a box of Kraft Mac & Cheese, it was pretty darn tasty.

I have put tuna into Mac & Cheese which definitely enhances the flavor of the Mac & Cheese mixture.

I'm kind of trying to stay away from something like mac n cheese, trying to use the tuna as a main source kind of thing. I am trying to lose weight, so I want it to be the main part of the meal.
