Summer of Salad – Egg and Tuna


This made 3  hearty sandwiches:

1 can tuna
2 hard boiled eggs
2 tbsp capers
1 tbsp dill
Mayonnaise to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Sliced tomatoes (I used my leftover grape tomatoes

Herbed mixed greens
6 slices whole wheat toast

Slice in half, pack in baggies, and you’re ready for a picnic in Prospect Park. (Baby carrot snack, optional)

Summer of Salad

So, my last blog ended rather abruptly. My pancetta was delicious and nobody died of Botulism. I cooked it in some pasta carbonarra.

This next phase of the blog will not involve books but will be a paean to salad. I’ve been feeling a bit chunky from all the exotic treats and am going to take a break with some healthy, summer friendly greens and the like.


My first adventure was a quick throw together job. I didn’t even slice my carrots.

Baby carrots
Sliced strawberries
Grape tomatoes
Herbed Mixed Greens
Line juice
Salt and pepper

I love mixing fruit into my salad.
