Fresh Tuna Salad

Fresh Tuna Salad


Life can often be hectic and harried. That's why it's nice to sometimes pause and slow down. Often it's during those slow moments that you really see some of the truly amazing things around you.


The weather in Los Angeles has been spectacular as of late. It seemed like a good time to resurrect what might be considered a summertime dish - the tuna salad. But this tuna salad is decidedly different - and I think, better. It uses fresh tuna rather than canned tuna. In other words, it's basically a variation of the classic salade Ni├žoise. 

What I like most about this particular salad is that it exemplifies how important it is to use fresh produce and good, quality ingredients. Often the best dishes are the simplest dishes.
