You know... instead of plain ol' meatloaf and mashed potatoes, we now feel obligated to fix something that requires 37 rare and hard-to-find ingredients, and then we have to use all kinds of fancy and expensive gizmos to make and mix it with.
Not that I've ever felt obligated ... but I'm just sayin'.
So, the other day when I was feeling peckish around lunch time, I decided to make a good old fashioned Tuna Salad Sandwich.
And once it was made, and I ate a big spoonful straight out of the bowl.... Mmmm!
I thought I had died and gone to heaven!
So it's true.
Sometimes simple is best!
I figured that with 2 men in the house, I should triple the recipe... and that way I would make sure that I had something left over for an afternoon snack for the next few days.
I'll give you the measurements I used, but this can easily be altered to suit your own tastes - or your appetite.
Tuna Salad Sandwich
3 cans of white Albacore tuna in spring water (drained)
3 hardboiled eggs, chopped
1 large dill pickle, with one half finely minced, and the other half roughly chopped
1 small onion, minced finely
Mayonnaise to moisten.
optional / a small sprinkling of dill or other fresh herbs / or a small splash of chili oil
I like it best on plain ol' wheat bread toast with lettuce, (reminds me of my far distant youth) but rustic whole grain breads or even toasted English muffins are real good too!
It's almost snack time for the kids and I, and I can hear that tuna calling my name... so I'll catch you later!
