I came up with this recipe on a hot summer day when I didn't feel like cooking. I frequently make it when friends come for lunch, and they all love it. Stuffed into a pretty pepper half, the fresh-tasting tuna mixture gets crunch from cucumber and green onions. It's priced right at 87¢ a serving.
This time, Tuna Salad for Two comes from Sharon Balzer of Phoenix, Arizona. "We have long, hot summers here in the dessert Southwest, so I try to get creative with salads and come up with cool dinners for my husband Roger, and me," explains Sharon.
"I've been serving this tasty, refreshing dish for at least 5 years. We think it's simply scrumptious!"
It's surprising how a few herbs can brighten up tuna salad. Made with reduced-fat mayonnaise, this version from Billie Moss gets zip from mustard. "It makes a great light lunch or Sunday brunch item," she notes from El Sobrante, California.
