Thai Tuna Salad

This can be a nice and easy side dish, or a way to quickly dress up tuna for a light meal. Tuna seems to offset the spiciness of the chilies, so this salad may not be as hot as it might seem from the recipe.

Use whatever type of lettuce you prefer. I like red coral but regular iceberg works nicely as well.
