A Little Help From the Pantry
Today was my first day off in over two weeks. It was a long time coming.
However I was opposite of productive today.
I decided against my almost impromptu trip because I was just not with it today.
I did get some much needed sleep though.
My plans were originally to go food shopping, but those plans were derailed by my laziness.
So for dinner, I turned to my pantry for help.
I almost always have a can of tuna in my pantry, just for times like these.
I knew I wanted to make a salad with it, but not the stereotypical mayonnaise based one we all know and love.
I channeled some Mediterranean vibes and went that route.
I chopped up some carrot, celery, kale, kalamata olives, green bell pepper, fresh oregano and thyme and capers.
In the bowl they went with the tuna.
Then I added some red wine vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard, garlic gold nuggets, salt and pepper and gave it a toss.
I found that the only way to mix this was to really get in there with my hands.
This is a great alternative to the mayonnaise based tuna salad that make mayonnaise haters cringe.
I love the tangy, saltiness from the capers and olives.
And yes, that is another glass of the watermelon lime aqua fresca I made yesterday. Can’t get enough of it!
This would be great on your favorite bread, with crackers or just on its own.
I plan on eating it over some bulghur wheat for dinner.
I really don’t want to do the dishes in my sink right now. Nor do I feel like folding the laundry that’s been sitting in my laundry basket for days.
Guess I better get cracking.
Hopefully I am more productive tomorrow!
Have a good night 🙂
