There are some recipes that I can only eat & REALLY enjoy to the maximum in the summer time.
I guess that I am a bit of a tomato snob.
The tomatoes from the grocery store are just not the same as the ones from my garden. Their taste isn’t as delicious. I have a crowded garden this year with 30 some tomato plants & they are ripening for our enjoyment!
There isn’t the same desire on my part to run in from the garden and just slice up a tomato(or two) & sit down to just eat & eat & eat.
I am trying to avoid most sugar and processed carbs. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t cave to an occasional Pepsi or slice of bread but this seems to be helping me whittle away at those pounds I gained after hip surgery in January.
So when the kids have pizza or something else I am avoiding I will pull out some tuna. They don’t enjoy tuna salad so this works out perfectly. It is a very fast & filling lunch.
Tuna & Tomato Salad
1 small can or pouch of tuna
1-2 Tbsp Miracle Whip
1 tsp pickle relish
Lettuce(romaine, green leaf & spinach)
Prepare lettuce by washing & tearing. Mix the tuna, Miracle whip & pickle relish. Arrange lettuce & sliced tomatoes on plate & top with tuna mixture. EAT!
