Post-holiday tuna

For those of you overdosing on butter, flour, sugar and all the other delicious ingredients Christmas treats have to offer, I thought I’d suggest a recovery meal of sorts.

This quick and easy tuna niçoise is made with oil-packed canned tuna. I remember when all tuna came this way, and now it’s making a comeback to regular grocery shelves.

I use:

Green leaf lettuce
Grape tomatoes
Pickling cucumbers
Boiled eggs
Red potatoes, steamed
Haricots vert, steamed and chilled (regular green beans will do, but these skinny French beans are worth it if you can find them)
Artichoke hearts, quartered (I like the cans from Goya, not marinated)
Italian or Greek olives (whatever you prefer)
Newman’s Own balsamic vinaigrette (I also like a zesty Italian)
Tuna packed in olive oil

Serve with a crusty bread if you must, but this meal is hearty and satisfying, especially after days of overindulging!

Merry Christmas!
