|(Not Tricked Up) Tuna Salad|
I don't know about you, but I have a habit of trying to trick up my tuna salad with all kinds of things - pecans, pine nuts, dried cranberries, pickles, celery, etc. I just don't know when to quit.
Well this time I did it. I refrained. I only added 3 ingredients (aside from salt and pepper) to my tuna and it was quite possibly better than I've ever made before.
Maybe it's the tuna (I used the fresh caught tuna my sister-in-law Deb purchased from a Garibaldi fisherman at the dock, then canned herself the same day) or maybe it's the simple goodness that comes from creating just the right flavor profile that enhances the tuna, but doesn't steal the show. Either way I can take credit for neither. My other sister-in-law Sunny made it this way last week and since then, I'm a convert.
