Herbs and Tuna Salad~
I never tire of creating new combinations for salads.
This is a very basic combination that delivers a very complex flavor.
With each bite you experience a different sensation,all coming from the different greens and herbs .
Serves 2...easy to double recipe
Start with a good mix of salad greens.
I use 2 or 3 mixes of lettuce, mesclun, mustard greens, spinach, basil leaves and a bit of Swiss chard.
Tear greens and add to plates .
In a small bowl add 1 or 2 small cans of water packed tuna-drained well
1 or 2 Tablespoons of plain yogurt ( or mayonnaise )
1 Tablespoon of chopped sweet pickle
1 Tablespoon sweet onion-chopped
Mix well and add to center of greens
Chop and add around the edge of the tuna mix;
1 small cucumber-chopped
1/2 to 1 whole avocado
Add a twist of fresh lemon
Your favorite crackers...and a good sprinkling of lemon pepper
A most delightful taste-bud treat~
