Big MacTuna


Busy Saturday!  A rush through the open market for eggs and veg, the hardware store and two supermarkets.  By the time we got back at 1:00 p.m. Jade, having home-worked all morning, was starving to death.  We all like tuna salad so I quickly made a batch and because she waited so long I made her a “Big MacTuna” with three slices of bread, a double layer of tuna,  crisp lettuce and tomatoes.   She ate this with a side of cranberry chutney. This just proves that what is referred to as “fast food” is not food at all but recycled garbage.  Rave, rant, rave, rant.  I think it’s going to take a while to get over Ramstein 😀

Big MacTuna

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1 celery branch, halved vertically and thinly sliced

2 hard boiled eggs, coarsely chopped

1 12 oz can solid white albacore tuna, drained and broken up with a fork

1/4 – 1/3 cup mayonnaise

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper

3 pieces of sliced bread, toasted

Mixed salad greens

Mix the scallions, celery, eggs, tuna, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper together. Spread a layer of the tuna on one piece of bread, top with some of the greens, put another slice of bread on top and spread with tuna, top with greens and then cover with the last slice of bread.

    Oh, Merci beaucoup! That’s what I’m having for lunch today! I attended the centennaire celebration of Swann’s Way, Vol. 1 of A la Recherche de Temps Perdus last night. Divine dinner, champagne, lovely reunion with The Asheville Proustians, but as I ate moderately from habit & caution, this morning I am already starving a la Jade! Headed to kitchen now to assemble early lunch with tuna, baguette, & all your ingredients plus lemon & chives! Merci encore…….

  2. I often wonder why people think they are saving themselves some time with processed foods and fast food. Most delicious meals from scratch are quick to make and are delicious like this one.

    Very true about our culture not valuing quality in food -wait I’ve always ranted on this topic haven’t I. Just wanted to say well done Jade for home-working on Saturday morning. My strategy was to put things off till Sunday evening.

    Completely agree! Thank you for this great idea, love finding new ways to whip up food just as quickly as at a fast food restaurant and which tastes far better anyway!

    Rave, rant, rave, rant. I know that particular piece of the high moral food ground. Mactastic!

    I sure Jade appreciated the nice lunch you made her.

  8. You might even make a tuna lover out of me! I’m going to make this, it sounds divine.

    Only you could make a tuna sandwich look so wonderful! And I’ll never understand people’s obsession with fast food, when sandwiches such as this are a quick, much-healthier alternative.

  10. Big MacTuna looks good!
