Sometimes, you takes your chances and you come up a winner.
We’d been away for a long weekend and I hadn’t had a chance to get to the market, but we were gonna need lunch. I had a couple of cans of my favorite tuna in the cupboard, but, what to do with it? QuickLikeABunny – to da Google!
The nice lady on allrecipes.com calls this Barbie’s Tuna, and I only needed to make a few, tiny changes to suit my pantry…
•2 cans tuna, drained
•3/4 cup mayonnaise
•3 tbsp sweet pickle relish
•3 tbsp dill pickle relish
•2 tbsp Asiago cheese, grated
•1/4 tsp dried onion
•1/2 tsp curry powder
•2 tbsp dried parsley
•1 tsp celery seed
•1/8 tsp garlic powder
•2 scallions, sliced
Combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl, then turn into a container, cover, and chill for at least 3 hours to allow the flavors to blend (and for that dried onion to rehydrate).
One. Fine. Tuna Salad.
Mebbe a touch heavy on the cheese – next time I plan on cutting back to one tablespoon – but truly a nice, and nicely different, take on your every day tuna.
We were both quite happy with it in sammiches for lunch, and the leftovers made for a tasty appetizer on some crackers I’ve been meaning to use up.
Check it out, and thank Barbie for a nice take on tuna.
