looooong time readers (hi, mom!) may remember my brief mention of a family favorite recipe called a scandinavian sandwich wheel that we always made a few times each summer when i was growing up. i still love that recipe, but no one else in this household is a fan (at all) and it’s a lot of work to make one for just me. i have no idea why it took me this long to think of this solution, but it’s brilliant–“scandinavian” tuna salad! i first ate it as a tuna melt, but i also enjoyed it as a cold tuna salad sandwich for lunch today (no photo, but i’m sure you can imagine it). here’s the approximate recipe:
–“scandinavian” tuna salad–
1 packet of tuna, packed in water
chopped green pepper
chopped black olives
1 hard boiled egg (chopped!)
if you want it as a tuna melt, put it on a piece of bread (or flatbread as above, it’s just what i had at hand), top it with some sliced tomatoes and cheddar cheese and then toast it in a toaster oven until the cheese melts. yum-o!
