If you like it then you shoulda put a LID on it- Summer Shak 'em Salads (Part One)

Baha. I love this title, sorry but it makes me think of something I reallyreally like!

What is it you may ask ( well more like who is it?)........

BEYONCE- Oh my geez...So fierce! I honestly love the music, the moves, everything! (in a straight girl way)
Hot Mess.
But dear readers, this post is not about Beyonce or her amazing dance moves. No, this post is about easy summa salads that are so darn good, you gotta put a LID on it to stop yourself from eating them. But feel free to keep pickin at them because they are sooo healthy and tasty too :)

There are two recipes for you guys because I am awesome. Your welcome.


Crunchtastic Tuna Salad- adapted from Every Day Food Magazine

1 Cucumber- Chopped in half (lengthwise) and into 1/2 inch pieces
2 Celery Stalks- Washed, chopped in half (lengthwise and itty bitty pieces)
1/2 Small Sweet Onion ( such as WallaWalla, or Vidalia)- Chopped into small strips
2 Cans Tuna- Drained and flaked.

Mix all these together in a bowl with a fitted lit (Tupperware is best!) THEN get....

1/4 Olive Oil (Extra Virgin Light)
2 Tbsp White Vinegar ( Red would work to)
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 tsp white sugar
Salt and Peppa to taste ( Pepper is REALLY good in it)
* And mix those in a separate (smaller bowl)

THEN- Add liquids to the main dish, put on a lid and SHAKE-SHAKE-SHAKE Tupperware.
*Let sit in the fridge to abit, garnish with fresh parsley if desired

Adding the liquid.

For those reader's who care...yes yes I did shake my money maker with this bootylicious tuna salad in my hands. And no there will be no picture of me doing it!
But! I believe you should try this delish concoction ( it will give you the excuse to
 a) shake something reallyreally hard
 b) dance in the kitchen!
c) BOTH!

So enjoy this one peeps! it really is soooo addictive (especially if you are a tuna fan- YEAH FISH!)

Thanks for the comment on my blog, Lauren! I love yours already. That salad looks awesome!
Good luck on your Piano Exam. It sound pretty intense!

I love the idea of shake 'em salads. :) I hate when salads get 'soggy' or heavy on top because the dressings sometimes congeal and then are 'naked' on the bottom. Problem solved.

Nothing wrong with having a girl crush! I have several ;) And good luck on your piano exam! I used to play when I was younger, and I only got up to grade 6 or something, but I remember the exams being pretty crazy. Knock 'em dead with your mad skills!

Oooh you can buy salads in shakers at M&S but i bet this would be MUCH tastier (and cheaper!)
Looks delicious :)

Mary @ Bites and Bliss said...

Looks wonderful! I don't have any celery, but I'll make this for lunch...substituting tomatoes for cucumbers! Oh...and I'll have to add a lot of onions. I just can't get enough of them! :)

Thanks! :)
