Instead, I'm pigging out.
Today, I started working on a tablescape, using my newly found PB rooster plates, and ended up making a Tuscan tuna salad instead.
Now, don't let the tuna salad part make you turn up your nose. It's not the tuna and mayonnaise tuna salad.
Most of the time I make it without pasta, and serve it with a few crackers. But this time, I had a pasta craving.
Here's what's in it...
1 can albacore tuna, drained
1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
Sometimes I use leftover cooked green beans instead of the cannellini...less calories. :)
1 can artichoke hearts, quartered, drained and rinsed
1/2 can of pitted ripe olives, drained of course
1/2 box of cooked pasta...sometimes I omit this if I'm watching my carbs.
Oh.. I forgot to show you the other things...
1 chopped tomato, or a handful of cherry tomatoes, halved, if you have those.
1 sliced green onion
and a couple of leaves of basil cut into little strips.
Mix everything together, and add a dressing made of olive oil, red wine vinegar, Italian seasoning and sea salt, in the amounts that you like.
Refrigerate for a little while, or serve right away if you're hungry.
...move over rooster plate...
I need a BIG plate!
Oh, what the heck! I'll start watching my carbs tomorrow.
Hope y'all had a great Monday.
