Kim's Story

I love having tuna salad on lettuce or as a sandwich; either way, I fix it the same and then add it to my choice of eats. I was raised on adding hard boiled eggs to my tuna and so it is just the way I like it along with the crunch of some celery added in and chopped onion. The seasonings mixed in with the mayo gives this tuna salad lots of flavor. Beau monde spice is one of my favorites & I am always trying to sneek it into my recipes. lol
The addition of those little salty capers I love. I add the tomatoes or pimentos for color on the lettuce salad and for a sammie I omit.
Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients

ALBACORE TUNA SALAD
1 small
can of albacore tuna
2 medium
eggs, hard boiled and sliced
2
celery stalks, diced small
2 - 3 Tbsp
onion, chopped
1/2
iceberg lettuce head, chopped
olive oil or grapeseed oil and vinegar
DRESSING FOR TUNA
3 Tbsp
mayonnaise
1/8 tsp
garlic powder (heaping)
1/8 tsp
onion powder (heaping)
1/2 tsp
beau monde seasoning
1/4 tsp
black pepper
GARNISH FOR SALAD
2 Tbsp
capers
1
dozen grape tomatoes, sliced
balsamic glaze, drizzled

Directions Step-By-Step

1
After boiling eggs pierce them with a needle on your egg slicer to remove shell easily.
2
Hard boil your eggs and then slice them two ways in your egg slicer.
3
Get two bowls ready by taking 1/2 of your shredded lettuce and placing it in the bowls. Drizzle olive oil and vinegar on lettuce.
4
Drain tuna and place in bowl. Add celery, eggs and fresh chopped onion. Mix your mayonnaise with the seasonings and add to tuna mixture. (You don't need salt because beau monde has plenty in it.) Once you have it all mixed take an ice cream scooper or big spoon and place a scoop of tuna on top of lettuce. Then, garnish with capers, tomatoes and a circular drizzle of balsalmic glaze. Add a little more cracked pepper if you like.

You are so silly! LOL....I always love your plateing skills over mine anyday. I love how you sliced the tomatoes and edged the salad with them. It reminds me of how I always love a salad more when someone else makes it rather than I. When I look at all your dishes I think you are more an artist and wonder if you paint, scuplt or draw? It seems to be very natural to you to plate up a dish of food and make it stunning!
