The heat continues and so do the salads-Tuna Salad with Romaine Lettuce & Fresh Vegetables and Herbs

It was another hot day in Michigan so it was another salad.  The cucumber, pepper and onion came from the farmer's market, the tomato from my wife's garden and the romaine lettuce came from Costco.  The six packs of romaine cost only slightly more at Costco than the three packs do at other stores.  The fresh herbs, as always, came from my wife's herb garden.

My lovely wife was in charge of lunch today and made it while I was updating software on my computer.  Once again, I don't have an exact recipe but here is the list of ingredients:

       Salad ingredients

  • 1 1/2 heads of Tanimure & Antle romaine lettuce from Costco
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 2 small roma tomatoes
  • 1- 7oz can Kirkland Signature Solid White Albacore tuna from Costco
      Dressing ingredients
  • Kosher salt
  • Kirkland Signature freshly ground black pepper 
  • 2 clove fresh garlic
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Champagne vinegar
  • Flat leaf parsley
  • Thyme
  • Sweet Basil
  • Oregano
My wife did make the dressing separately and then dressed the salad.  The fresh veggies and herbs gave the salad a lively, cool flavor while the tuna added some very satisfying protein with very little fat.  It  certainly made for a great lunch and there is enough leftover for dinner, although we may add more tuna.   And with all those fresh it herbs, it smelled wonderful.
