Today I’d like to talk about my favorite flavor combination: Anything with tons of garlic and plenty of lemon juice.

Before you complain, can you really tell me that anything with those two ingredients isn’t always delicious? Greek salad? Seafood pasta? Garlic hummus? Gremolata to put on everything? Salad dressing? Ok fine, maybe it’s not a universal obsession, but it certainly is the center of most of the things I make these days, much to the dismay of the people who are close enough to smell me… whatever, it’s heart healthy! But yeah, don’t say I didn’t warn you about your breath….

My Favorite Tuna Salad

What you’ll need:

– Plenty of garlic, minced (I like to go for at least 3 cloves, but that is certainly up to you)

– Red onion, thinly diced

– Carrots, thinly diced

– Scallions, diced

– 1 can of domestic, white, albacore tuna in water — troll or pole caught (I went with a GREAT one from Whidbey Island, WA)

– Dijon mustard, ~ 2 tablespoons

– Lemon juice, ~1/2 of a large lemon or 1 whole small lemon

– Plenty of salt and fresh pepper

Optional add-ins:

– Dried onion flakes


1) Really? It’s tuna salad. Mix it together. I think you all get it.

Brush your teeth after eating.

“It’s an empowering idea. The entire goliath of the food industry is ultimately driven and determined by the choices we make as the waiter gets impatient for our order or in the practicalities and whimsies of what we load into our shopping carts or farmers’ market bags.” - Jonathan Safran Foer ..............................................................
