Tasty Tuna

Growing up in Coastal Southern California, I was surrounded by delicious, freshly caught seafood. Friends/customers of my parents owned one of the largest tuna canneries on the West Coast. I guess that is why my Mom always had a case or two of canned albacore tuna in her pantry. Needless to say, I grew up eating high quality tuna and to this day, it is still one of my favorite foods.

Using tuna fish for sandwiches, year after year, can get pretty boring, not to mention the health risks associated with the high fat content of real mayonnaise. Since I enjoy lots of variety in my meals, I have created some tasty alternatives for everyday tuna (or chicken) sandwiches. Some contain just a dollop of mayo, while others don’t contain any at all. In fact, my Lemon Pepper Tuna is moistened with a delicious homemade vinaigrette.

Check back soon for some easy, tasty ways to dress up your next tuna or chicken sandwich using dibs and dabs of leftover pestos, tapenades, hearty Mediterranean spreads, oils, and spices! And if you have a recipe you would like to share, please add it to this post.
