The first Barefoot Blogger event for May was a tuna salad, chosen by Kate of Warm Olives and Cool Cocktails.
I happen to love ahi tuna, seared on the outside, nice and pink on the inside. And, I could well have searched for fresh tuna or used the frozen steaks I had on hand, but I was really, really hungry when I made this Monday night after work, so I chose to use some high quality albacore from the can. It was 8 pm by the time I could settle in and eat, you see, since I had to stop on the way home and find an immediately usable avocado.
It was 8 pm before I could settle in and eat, you see, since I had to stop on the way home and find an immediately usable avocado and a red onion. Taking the time to cook or thaw/cook the tuna was not in the cards.
But, the end result was delicious and satisfying, a salad I would recommend and definitely fix again.
Until then, I'll keep searching for some real wasabi powder to add to my pantry. Did it count that I whispered the name 'wasabi' over the finished salad?
