Tuna Pasta Salad

The lazy hazy days are finally here, and I am beside myself with happiness at all the fresh local veggies that are popping up at my local farm market.  I'm tossing them into every single thing I can think of, including and most especially supper, and one of my favorites is this quick and easy tuna pasta salad, which has loads of one of my personal favorites, sweet and sunny cherry tomatoes.  A handful of those babies, some fresh lemon, a little pasta and the best jarred or canned tuna you can get your mitts on, and you are all set for a light and lovely summer supper!

Tuna Farro Salad

We are down to the last hours before the first holiday weekend of Summer 2015, and if you are in charge of the eats, I'm thinking you have your main course all ready to roll.  My dad's recipe for Coca-Cola Ribs has moved into the first place position on this site as folks get ready to fire up the grill.  But if you are still working on ideas for fun and festive sides, I'm here to put in my vote for this delectable tuna farro salad.  Hearty, healthy and a good alternative if you have any non-meat-eaters in the crowds, and it stars my all-time favorite grain, the scrumptious farro.  And while you CAN sub in other grains (more on that later), if you haven't tried the deliciousness that is farro, here's your chance!

Grilled Tuna with Sesame Noodles

The Southern husband and I love us some seafood in the summer.  It's light, it's delicious, it's good for us and in the case of this particular recipe, it involves cooking some tuna for exactly one minute per side.  Yup.  One minute.  When you put this fact together with my favorite sesame noodle recipe (also super-fast) and a little lettuce - well, summer suppers don't get too much better.

One Bowl Suppers: Tuna with Spinach, Potatoes and Radishes


Welcome to the latest in my series of One Bowl Suppers!  If you are just tuning in to this channel now, the Southern husband and I are having a weekly one bowl supper that features a whole grain, a protein, some kind of greens, some kind of colorful veggie and a drizzle of dressing.  We've experimented so far with steak, with seared tuna and with salmon, and this time we gave jarred tuna a go.  And once again, experimenting with a completely made-up-at-the-drop-of-a-hat combo of flavors and ingredients didn't let us down!

One Bowl Suppers: Tuna with Roasted Fennel


As I mentioned on this here blog a few weeks ago, the Southern husband and I are doing a one bowl supper once a week these days.  The bowl (which is actually usually a plate but bowl sounds SO much cozier), has to contain a protein, a whole grain, a colorful veggie, a green veggie and some kind of interesting topping.  It has us both debating and trying all kinds of combos we've never tried before...in this case tuna with brown rice and roasted fennel and baby carrots and candied pecans and a few other things...and we feel all healthy and delicious while we are eating.  Win, win, win.

Tuna Nicoise Pasta


This is the time of year when I actually try to step away from the bacon for a moment or two and do the whole new year new you thing.  The Southern husband is always game for a soup or salad supper, but at the same time I want to make something that is going to be interesting and delicious.  And so I did one of my favorite things to do, which is take something that I like in one form and flip it into another one...in this case, I took an innocent tuna nicoise salad and pasta-fied it.  Pasta-fied is a word, right?  If not, it should be.  I hereby declare it a word!
