Recipe

Every once in awhile things line up just right. Sometimes its big life things and sometimes its little things like this lunch. I was sitting at my desk last week trying to finish some email and distracting myself with thoughts of lunch. My stomach was growling and I knew I had nothing in the house. I was already envisioning some weird, mish-mash creation that undoubtedly involved the canned beans that are always in my pantry. And then I saw this recipe for crunchy cabbage tuna salad and mentally cheered since I had everything on hand. I lightened up the tuna salad with nonfat yogurt and light sour cream, which I prefer to mayonnaise. And the cabbage is a brilliant idea for adding volume and crunch. It’s perfect, especially with the addition of a thinly sliced jalapeno and green apple if you are feeling frisky.

    The directions for the Crunchy Cabbage Tuna Salad say to add the Jalapeno and apple but those ingredients aren't listed. How much of each do you add? Do you drain the water from the tuna first? I choose the middle ground and drained half the water. I also ended up using a whole small apple chopped and about 2 Tbsp chopped Mild Jalapeño. I loved it! Served it on a Bubba's Skinny Bagel.
