Garden Chat and a Recipe

The best part about living in the middle of two Italian families as well as having an Italian Step Mother, is that we are constantly being given fresh vegetables from their and their families gardens. :)

We get fresh lettuce, fresh tomatoes, fresh cucumbers, the list goes on and on and it never gets old. The recipes you can make with fresh vegetables always taste so much better then what you buy at a supermarket and something about the look of a nicely grown green onion from your neighbour's yard is a good way of knowing that you are nourishing your body as well with fresh produce. :)

I attempted to make a tuna salad with some of the lettuce and onions we received, but I'm not a huge fish fan so I got really grossed out and fed it to my dogs, ha. If you like tuna though, you'll love the salad.

What You'll Need:

  • Sun Dried Tomato Tuna (or if you can't find that, a jar of sundried tomatos in oil and a can of tuna)
  • One Tomato, quartered
  • A fresh head of lettuce, chopped
  • Green Onion, chopped
  • 2 tbs of Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon, Freshly Squeezed
  • Salt, Pepper to taste
  • Garlic Salt
Mix it all together and you have a salad. Easy Peezy
