Tuna, Tuna my dear old friend.
We meet weekly I can’t pretend.
Sweet and flaky that’s what you are.
I love you as salad; my favorite by far.
Tomatoes Stuffed with Tuna
I was excited to see that I would once again try to make homemade mayonnaise. My first attempt eight years ago was a disaster. So much so I have not tried to make it again. My excitement quickly fizzed after several attempts this past week including two tries this morning resulting in nothing even close to resembling mayo. I was pressed for time and needed to post this blog while it was still Monday so I substituted commercially prepared mayo. No boos please.
Mayo refusing to emulsify
This recipe is a tuna salad made with mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and capers stuffed inside a tomato. Over the years I have always eaten canned tuna packed in water. This is the first time I’ve had canned tuna packed in oil. Marcella was right. It has more flavor. The results are simple and delicious with a slightly salty bite.
