Tonight I was on my own... The kids had already eaten ( Poor little Miles, he is sick so when he finally asked for Kraft Dinner I had to oblige) and Brian was off to work. I hate making dinner for one. It seems like so much effort for such a small amount of return. Most of the time I settle on a yogurt or toast. But I went to the gym this afternoon for a good workout & I was hungry. So I put in 15 minutes (not even) and made myself a kick-butt salad. So glad I did. This recipe is really for two people, but I ate more than half (surprise!) & there's a little left over for Brian when he gets home from work late tonight.
The 'Sitch': Cube an avocado, drain & break-up a tin of tuna (I like the kind that comes packed in water), splash it around in some lemon juice & a glug of olive oil. Throw in a thinly sliced green onion & a handful of cherry tomatoes (halved). Add a little paprika & pepper. Mix it up & throw it onto a bed of arugula. Deeeelish.
I got the recipe from Chef Michael Smiths Favourite Recipes book... and added it to arugula. I looove arugula. He serves it in the avocado skins which looks so cute, and is good for portion control..... but I was having none of that tonight.
