Well, guess what?
It’s pouring in Brisbane. AGAIN. I swear, we might as well live in Seattle. I haven’t watered my plants in a week (though it’s time to fertilize again, joy!)
The weather makes me feel a bit cranky. Not even cranky, just a bit blah. I want spice, I want pep, I want to be in SUMMER (which it technically is here, for all my hemisphere challenged friends suffering through February snows and winds – sorry for my whinging.) That being said, I really didn’t want to work hard to get that delightful feeling. Because, as mentioned, I felt blah.
Hence, the Lazy-Ass Fiesta Tuna was born. This is hardly a recipe, but it tasted so good and was so easy that I couldn’t resist sharing. It takes exactly two minutes to put together (unless you make your own mayonnaise, which is highly recommended – in fact, I would heartily recommend avoiding commercial mayonnaise, which is twice as expensive for twice as many chemicals.) (If you make your own mayonnaise, double recipe time to…four minutes.)
Into the mix went:
Mix them all up, serve, and eat. As the Australians say (even when it’s totally NOT true), “too easy.”
Lazy-Ass Fiesta Tuna
paleo, grain-free, sweetener-free, soy-free, budget-friendly
Serves 2 – 3
- 1 425 gram can tuna, preferably sustainably pole and line caught (not only better for environment but tastes better!)
- 1.5 tbsp mayonaise
- 2 tbsp salsa (ideally make your own…though I don’t. If you’re in Australia, try Byron Bay Chili Co Spicy Salsa- their aren’t any scary ingredients, no sugar, and the owners are super friendly.)
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1/4 lime
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Stir. Eat. Preferably with a margarita.
