Friday’s quick ideas for the week end #9 - Cold tuna tart

Tuna Tart

Tuna Tart

At this moment I am involved in two wonderful projects. The first one is that I am restoring an old cupboard that belonged to my husband's grandfather

The second project I’ll tell you later and I must to say you, is very good. So, sorry not being able to visit you much this week

This recipe is very easy and convenient, healthy and also very colorful. It can occur on an individual as a snack or a whole pie. Is served cold as it is ideal for summer or for a lighter meal

Cold Tuna Pie

  • Your favorite savory crust
  • 340g canned tuna (preserved in water)
  • 1 cup corn grains (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup fresh peas
  • 2 large tomatoes or a cup of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion cute in dices
  • ½ cup fennel cut in small dices
  • 1 cup baby carrot steamed
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise (optional)

Bake the crust and allow cooling

Drain the tuna

In a large bowl mix carefully all ingredients

Add olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper

Pour the filling into the crust and dressing with mayonnaise

Oh, no es solamente preciosa a la vista, también resulta muy apetitosa como bien dices para estos calores que tenemos ahora en España...

Estás muy misteriosa con lo del segundo proyecto, qué será? seguro que algo estupendo.

Fantásticas fotos, como siempre.

Saluditos y feliz fin de semana.
