Tuna Salad - Kick It Up a Notch!

As the weather starts warming I'm in the mood for lighter meals.

This recipes comes from  Martha Steward's HORS D'OEUVRES.
It is a recipe for a finger food I first served for a gathering several years ago.
There were a few left over after the party and the next day for lunch,
I put them in a pita and discovered it was a wonderful sandwich.

makes 40 hors d'oeuvres

Drain 1 7-oz can of tuna well and put it in a mixing bowl.

Add 1/4 c. currants
1/4 c. chopped toasted pecans
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 T. red wine vinegar
2 T. chopped chutney
Curry powder to taste

I like Harry and David's Mango Chutney.

Mix well.
Refrigerate until ready to use.
Martha then topped rounds of cucumber slices, for hors d'oeuvres.
I usually double this recipe, decreasing the mayo a bit,
 since I use it for sandwiches.

I'm trying to get more fish into my diet.
Do you think this will count?

Hi Susan, Your sandwich sounds yummy and that is saying something for a person who doesn't care for fish. I like sandwiches in different kinds of bread something that is not the traditional, white, wheat, and etc.
I enjoyed the pictures. I liked your pretty pillows in the previous post. Take care. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Well, it should count! I have been eating way too many TV dinners because I can't stand on my feet long. This would be a great change!
