Day One Seventy Nine - A fast easy fresh tuna salad

After a long day of running around, I wanted something simple and quick for dinner and since I'm leaving town tomorrow, my fridge is not nearly as full as it might otherwise be on a weekend, so I thought I'd make my version of a healthy tuna salad on fresh crusty pane di sesamo from the Gourmet Garage.

This was easy, quick, nutritious, and full of veggies and protein! So I thought why not share this recipe with you all, it's easy as pie!

1/2 - full can of tuna in water (depending on hunger level)
1 1/2 teaspoons of fresh chevre with herbs
Handful of mixed greens
1 celery stick sliced
5 cherry tomatoes diced finely
1/4 cup of diced crisp yellow pepper
1/6 chopped red onion
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Maille Dijon Mustard
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Black Pepper and Salt

1. Dice all the veggies
2. Toss all together in a bowl and mix until all of the ingredients are nicely blended together.
3. Serve on top of toasted crunchy bread with a glass of crisp white wine.

Although not very glamorous and exciting this simple recipe will hit the spot when you're running around from place to place. For those of you used to mayo with your tuna, you will be surprised that mustard, olive oil and chevre create just as sufficient a creamy quotient as the mayo.

Enjoy folks.
