Recipe ~ Friday 🍽 Fancy (low-cal) Tuna Salad 

Hello my lovely friends 💕 Thanks for visiting. 😀 Wanna know what’s for dinner? 

I’m veering off course from last week’s plan/post …remember I showed you the book ‘I Hear America Cooking’ and wanted to ‘test cook’ something from Chapter 1? Well, turns out that it’s mostly Chilis and hot soups! While that will be awesome in the fall, it’s not so great during the heat wave we’re just sitting/sweating through. 😎🌞👙

So tonight we’re having a fancy-ish Tuna Salad 🥗 It’s easy, perfect for this weather – the kitchen and you will stay cool 😁- and low-cal! 😜 Doesn’t get better than that, right? 

All you need is 

~ a can of Tuna (or a Rotisserie chicken; or beans for a vegan version)

~ a jar of sweet relish 

~ Pepper 

~ Lettuce 

~ and anything cold and delicious you can think of 🥑🍅🥕🌽🥒🌶

💫Mix the Tuna with an equal amount of relish. Add Pepper. 

Mix well (It won’t be exactly pretty at this point…but you will make it look awesome 😋)

Arrange on a bed of lettuce, and garnish with all your favorite things. 😊

Here are a few of mine…boiled Eggs, Olives, Banana Peppers, Cucumber, Radishes, Artichoke Hearts, Cherry Tomatoes. 

There! Now it’s pretty, right?! 😺

What is your favorite hot-weather dish? We’re expecting a lot more hot days, so I’ll do a happy dance 💃🏻 for each and every suggestion!  😎

Have an amazing weekend! 

Until next time 💕

~ Tina xoxo

    That looks delicious!! I’ll have to make this.
    When we cook something on the grill I like to make this salad as a side dish. It’s perfect for hot summer days.
