‘Dilled’ Tuna Salad, an old favorite
Lately, a few friends have been asking me for my tuna salad recipe, the one we used to make at Alchemy Market and Wine Bar and Wren Café. I don't blame them, it is different and delicious. It is also really simple. I think it's absolutely a summer picnic staple. I am happy to share this recipe because I know you will love it so much! Serve as a salad on lightly dressed greens with arugula and avocado or as a sandwich. It's great on country style bread or, (Alchemy style) on a croissant with alfalfa sprouts and avocado. You can also eat it like I do, on buttered crostini right out of the mixing bowl. YUM.
