Spicy Tuna Salad and my new toy

It has been so hot here in Florida already that turning the stove on is blasphemous. I have no desire to stand over a stove with any heat. So my tuna salad was a good option for dinner. Tuna salad is extremely easy to make and you do not have to be stuck eating it just one way.

 Ingredients for a tuna salad are pretty basic. Most of these are everyday pantry items.

And the good thing about it is that the method is basically a "chop and mix" method.

Onion, corn, and scallions:

Then I add my drained and chipped tuna


Dijon mustard

Some pepper sauce

After mixing those together and ensuring they were incorporated, I added the remaining ingredients. Apples, raisins, red pepper flakes, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Your salad is done.

Now how do you eat it?

I butterflied a tomato on a bed of lettuce and placed some tuna in the middle.

I also tested out my new light. I do a lot of my cooking late in the night. Before I even started blogging I cooked late. At 11 pm and I'm trying to decide what I want to cook for dinner. I got the Lowel EGO Digital Imaging, Tabletop Fluorescent Light Unit. (affiliate link. I may gain a few coins if you decide to purchase) There were some rave reviews on it from few other food bloggers, but I am not too sure if it is giving me so much better light.

Here is a side by side. I guess I can see the difference, but I am not overly impressed. I may need to practice with it more.

What do you think?

And how else do you eat your tuna salad?
