Introduction to Tuna Salad in Cucumber Boats.

Hi loves! I know that I have been somewhat MIA – no post last week – but I’m very excited to be back and sharing my tuna cucumber app, specifically for my vegeterian foodies.  The inspiration to add different ingredients to my tuna came from a few brunches in Ireland.  Have you had their tuna salad?! My sis and I had a go-to deli when I studied abroad and they served a tuna salad wrap with corn and tomato relish and it was baller. So, here is my rendition!


Big things going on last week and I have been discovering a new area of Chicago: Gold Coast.  Along with trying different restaurants and experimenting in my kitchen (with my brand-new spice rack and knives), I’ve added to my No-Chip Series with this app.

What makes Tuna Salad in Cucumber Boats THE BEST.

  1. So easy to make – but does take some hand work. If you know how to scoop, you’re in.
  2. You’ll be able to check off your daily fruits and veggies: cucumber, craisins, red onion, celery and more cukes!
  3. This is a big move in the history of tuna; the cucumber adds a fresh taste that changes boring ‘ol tuna to tuna party time.

Tuna Salad in Cucumber Boats is perfect for any party app.

The Jolly Hostess twist this week takes an experimental tuna salad with cranberry and cucumber on top of cucumber boats. This is a versatile easy and dish for snacks, summer picnics, concerts on the lawn, kids’ baseball games or day-drinking parties – this healthy app with a crunch is for it all. And try to just have one!

Instructions
  1. Strain tuna (I use the top of the can and squeeze) and put into a medium-sized bowl, using a fork to break up pieces. Add the next five ingredients and mix.
  2. Cut the cucumbers in half and scrape out seeds with a spoon. You'll want about a half inch of a channel created.
  3. Using the same spoon (Elin - the bf - would be proud - his goal in life is to stop me from using EVERY tool I have in the kitchen for one dish!), fill the channels with the tuna salad. Cut in fourths.
  4. Serve immediately.  OR if you are packing this up with your wine and blanket, wrap them individually with Saran wrap.  I took these to the Indy 500 parade and they fit perfectly in the cooler.
