Mediterranean Tuna Salad May 23, 2012

Jamie says: I enjoyed this salad as part of my lunch after returning from the blueberry festival this weekend. The funny thing about the blueberry festival was that we weren’t allowed to pick blueberries and the blueberries didn’t arrive until late. (And when they did, they were in the same cartons you get from Publix.) Regardless, I had a great time with my two dietitian friends and we purchased lots of produce from a booth there. Next year we’re going to do our own blueberry festival, though.

The salad was so simple yet so flavorful. The fresh mozzarella is a nice treat. It’s a lot moister than your typical slice of mozzarella.

So many delicious Mediterranean flavors…

I also reminisced about my cooking lesson day with Maureen Fant and K in Rome where we met “the tomato man” at the market… These little tomatoes came from my local farmers’ market (not quite like Italy but still wonderful).
