Tuna Salad in the Round
1/2 cup roasted peppers (canned in water)
1 6-ounce can white tuna packed in water, drained and flaked
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 Roma or plum tomatoes, seeds removed, cut in strips
1/2 avocado, sliced
2 cups spring mix or shredded lettuce
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
1 carrot, peeled into strips
Optional: small ripe olives, pepperoncini (Italian peppers), or artichoke hearts,
Make a main-meal salad lunch or light dinner for 2 with a can of tuna and a ring mold,
such as a 4-1/2-inch diameter mini-spring-form pan or an empty can with the top and
bottom cut out (a 28-ounce can is about 4 inches in diameter).
Place the mini-spring-form pan (without the bottom) or other ring mold on a serving
plate. Line with the roasted peppers and spread the tuna over it. The next layer is
the chopped onion, then the tomato strips, pressing down lightly on each layer. Top
with the avocado slices. Carefully remove the mold. Arrange spring mix or other shredded
lettuce around the "cake" and decorate the plate with small tomatoes and carrot strips.
Add optional garnishes, if desired.
