    Anyone have any suggestions for tuna salad?

    I have seen suggestions using

    --cranberries
    --pineapple
    --chick peas
    --black beans
    --green or black olives
    (with either a dollop of mayo or red wine vinegar or olive oil)

    I've tried all but the cranberry one so far. And they're all good.

    I like to eat tuna right after I work out/bike--so I prefer something fast and easy and with not very many additional calories. And preferably with no cooking involved.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    For some reason, using fruit with tuna does not appeal to me, and I haven't tried garbanzos or black beans with it (yet).

    I usually add:

    chopped onions
    chopped celery
    black pepper

    and sometimes also:

    diced garlic
    olives
    chopped dill pickles

    On a bed of lettuce (or mixed in with a lettuce and tomato salad), or on a toasted English muffin with lettuce.

    But I am bad and almost always put more than a dollop of Hellman's mayo in it. Since I don't have this often, I don't feel guilty about the mayo.

    Oh, and I do the same things with pink salmon.

    Your post reminded me of this yummy veggie sandwich:

    toasted bread of any kind
    lettuce
    sliced tomato
    sliced cucumber
    avocado (optional)
    black pepper
    mayo

    My cousin had a bumper crop of Romas this year and I've been gifted with a ton of them. Anyone have an easy pasta sauce recipe? I'd be happy if it didn't take nine hours since it's so darned hot!

    Light-textured sauce for hot weather (it's hot here, too):
    Criss-cross cut at bottom of tomatoes (just through the skin layer). Blanch for a minute in boiling water. Drain and skin the tomatoes. Let cool just enough to handle bare-handed. If you don't like the seeds, cut in halves or quarters and seed them. Crush by squeezing with your hands. (Or if you find that icky, mash with a potato masher, or rough chop with a good knife.) You want a rough, rustic texture. Set aside. In a big pot, sweat onions and garlic in olive oil. Add dry red or white wine and reduce. Add tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add a little sugar -- 1/2 tsp.? -- if you want to cut the acidity. Cook down until you get the desired texture. Add a handful of chopped basil. Stir a bit. (If there are other seasonings that float your boat, add those to taste.) Remove from heat and ladle over pasta (or stir in with cooked pasta). Freeze leftovers.

    Thanks, Ellen. That sounds perfect! How many tomatoes?

    Depends on how many you have, how big your pot is, how much you feel like making, how much work you want to do, how long you want to keep the stove on, how much you want the sauce to cook down. A shallower layer cooks faster than a full pot. I've never made it the same way twice. The lighter and less cooked down, the fewer tomatoes. I guess a dozen is good to start with for a couple servings and some leftovers of a lighter-textured sauce. If you want to cook it down more or want more leftovers, though, use more tomatoes.

    Critical--hi.

    Have you considerd making sun dried tomatoes? Roma tomatoes are supposed to be very good.

    There are many recipes online for making them in the microwave that don't take a lot of time and they can be stored many ways including in the refrigerator and the freezer.

    I'm going to have to plant some Roma's. One year I sun dried them under glass. OMG they were delish.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.
