Ok, I am going to try this thing called super speedy blogging. No food styling (yes, that's a plastic red plate you are seeing), no interesting romantic stories and no complicated, well tested recipes. This is fast food Helen's way :) Why? Because if I don't do it this way, it never gets done these days.
Sammy and I just came back from our walk, and while she was working on a big and lovely poop on the changing table, I make this quickie little salad. Who knew combining 2 cans could taste so good! Though I have a feeling it had something to do with super ripe tomatoes we got from our CSA.
Tuna salad for hungry moms
Serves 2 hungry moms
1 can tuna in oil
1 can beans of your choice, rinsed
1/4 cup sliced red onion
1/4 cup finely chopped broccoli florets
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
Salt and Pepper
In a medium bowl, combine tuna, beans, onion, broccoli, lime juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well. The salad can be made up to this point a day in advance. Right before serving, arrange tomato on a plate, sprinkle with basil, top with tuna salad. Gobble up before the baby needs to be fed or changed.
