Tuna Salad

I created this recipe when wanting to fix something different for lunch. I stuffed this tuna salad into a garden-ripened tomato. It was delicious! This would also make a wonderful tuna salad sandwich.


2 (6-ounce) cans solid white tuna, drained well
2 tablespoons minced red bell pepper
2 to 3 tablespoons minced red onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon capers, drained and minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro leaves or basil leaves
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon tabasco or to taste
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium bowl, break up tuna into flakes. Add red bell pepper, red onion, garlic, capers, and cilantro or basil leaves; mix together. Blend in olive oil, lime juice, mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar, tabasco, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to let flavors blend.

When ready to use, remove from refrigerator. Spread either on bread or stuff in a large tomato.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
