As it gets hotter, sometimes we want to have something substantial that doesn’t need to be cooked.
I’ve shared this recipe before, and this may be a good time to do so again….this time with a video!
This is my favorite salad. It requires staples that everyone has in the pantry, yet it’s healthy AND delicious! Great all year around! When you already have chopped onions and/or dressing in your fridge, it will take less than 5 minutes. If you don’t, make extra chopped onions and dressing to save time later.
- Chop ½ onion.
- Cut 1 apple (I recommend Fuji) into eighths, and slice them thin. Sprinkle with wine vinegar or lemon juice.
- Combine chopped onion and 1 can tuna (in olive-oil preferred), and 1 can chickpeas. Mix well.
- Add apples and minced parsley (optional).
- Add dressing made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Wine vinegar, Salt and Pepper and mix gently. Or just add about 2-3 TBS of wine vinegar, S&P.
Note: For a vegetarian version, omit tuna.
Tip: If the tuna is the water-packed kind, you may want to pour extra virgin olive oil on the drained tuna first… Make sure to taste the mixture and add the appropriate amount of vinegar and salt to balance the flavor.
For other uses of chopped onions, please refer to the post dated March 27, 2009.
Usage for extra dressing: various salads, dipping raw and steamed vegetables, etc.
This is a crowd pleaser which only takes 5 minutes. Great for any time, and any occasion. I often serve this for brunch, dinner parties and potluck! You HAVE TO try this!
Let me know how it like it!
