There is nothing fancy about this except maybe the presentation. When you want something besides a plain tuna fish sandwich for lunch this is just the thing. The recipe is in Ina Garten’s new cookbook How Easy is That? I would give you the recipe but The Barefoot Bloggers have requested that we not publish the recipes from this book unless they have already been posted on the food network. But how hard can this be? You just toast sourdough bagettes, spread them with store bought hummus, or homemade if you have it, and top it with your favorite tuna salad mixture. The radishes give it a festive touch. I would recommend using a good quality tuna though. I no longer buy water packed tuna, even though it may be saving a few calories. Oil packed tuna has a much better flavor.
When we are in Florida we tend to have people who stop in for lunch, so I am always on the lookout for interesting luncheon dishes. Here are a few other suggestions from previous posts.
This four layer salad has a real wow factor. Guacamole, tomato salad, cucumber salad, and shrimp form a tower of goodness. I think the next time I serve it, I will put it on a bed of greens. You can find the recipe here.
Soup is always a good choice for lunch. Escarole, white bean and sausage soup is one of my easy favorites. It is great served with cornbread. You can find the recipe here.
Instead of having quiche for lunch, try this tasty black bean tart with easy chili crust. A refreshing salad with avocado and orange slices would be the perfect side dish. The recipe for the tart can be found here.
These are a few of my favorite lunches. After being under the weather for a week, I am ready to tackle Christmas.
