Fregola is an Italian rolled pasta similar to Israeli couscous, and it's wonderfully toothsome in this salad. If you can't find fregola (or wanted to go gluten free), millet would be a great substitute. Top with a few chunks of good quality tuna packed in olive oil and you've got a nice, hearty, nourishing meal.
