A Simple Tuna Salad For a Summer Fresh Dinner

A Simple Tuna Salad For a Summer Fresh Dinner

Tuna salad was one of my favorite sandwiches when I was a teen ager in Rio. I loved the one sold by the Brazilian fast food chain Bob’s. It was made with toasted bread with the cold tuna salad inside. A perfect mix.

Nowadays I don’t eat sandwiches that often, but I kept trying to imitate that tuna salad that captured my palate and I admit that, when I prepare it, we have no leftovers at all ;-).

But, as you know, sometimes we forget a recipe for a while, sticking to others. Well, a couple of days ago I saw a tuna salad recipe and felt like doing it again. I prepared some for me, my husband and my daughter. Well, we ate it all and I had to prepare a second batch ;-). My daughter doesn’t love tomatoes and exclamed: “I even ate the tomatoes!”

Yes, other than tasty, it is a very simple recipe, quick to prepare. It can be a good solution when you have unexpected friends for a snack too.

I served it into tomatoes, but you can serve it in a bowl, adding tomatoes aside. It matches all breads (we ate it with wet Sardinian bread) and it is really a risky-free-super-simple recipe.
