Tuna Salad with Romaine, Radish, Walnuts and Scallions

This is a great lunch or light supper.  Feel free to add any fresh herbs you may have hanging out in the refrigerator.  Chives, parsley, cilantro, and thyme would all work well in this salad.  If you don’t like radishes, substitute carrots or red pepper for that added crunch and color.

Adding pesto to canned tuna is a nice change from the common mayonnaise usually used.  I also like adding pine nuts, which is used in the popular Genovese Basil Pesto.  Wrapping the tuna up with some spinach in a burrito wrap offers an easy, portable sandwich.

Tuna Niçoise Tartine

Adapted from Bouchon by Thomas Keller

In Bouchon Keller provides recipes for a variety of tartines, or opened faced sandwiches.  I decided to start with the Tuna Niçoise Tartine.  This gives an everyday tuna sandwich an elegant twist.  I’m a huge fan of a incise salad, with all the flavorful items that join the tuna to create a satisfying lunch or dinner.  This tartine has a lot of components, but it’s well worth the effort of chopping and prepping for this delicious open-faced sandwich.  If you don’t like a certain topping, leave it out or replace it.  You can make the tartine your own.

Just like salmon patties, you can use canned tuna to make tuna patties.  If you’d like to serve them on a bun as a sandwich make them a larger, making two patties from one can, rather than four.

Tuna Salad

Tuna Salad

A perfect quick lunch, or dinner, tuna salad is a great pantry meal.  Below is a guide to how I put a tuna salad together, but don’t limit yourself to these ingredients.  If you don’t have almonds but have walnuts, add some chopped walnuts.  Use some dried fruit like cranberries or raisins if you don’t have grapes.  I also like adding finely chopped celery or cucumber mixed in with the tuna for a nice crunch.  Chopped pickles or relish is also a nice addition to the tuna to add a boost of flavor.  Even frozen peas, thawed of course, are a great ingredient.  The peas add a fresh burst of sweetness with each bite.
