Radicchio Shells with Tuna Fish Salad

When it comes down to a Tuna Fish Salad, it does not have to be complicated. The salad I made, contains a little spice, a little pasta and some freshness from lemon zest and lemon juice. The radicchio leaves will add some bitterness that is countered by the olive oil – Radicchio Shells with Tuna Fish Salad is a healthy salad that’s served in a different coat. Serve it as an appetizer or a lunch or at a party.

Radicchio Shells Tuna Fish Salad1

Living and working outside a big city, officially it is called rural, but unfortunately not much rural left, but still I am like 30-40 minutes outside the city of Atlanta and with just a few eat-out options. So going out for lunch on a regular basis, is not in the cards, but if I do, I often resort to eating a tuna fish sandwich. I happen to like it and it is a little healthier than a burger or a large sub, however, when it is a tuna sandwiches with heaps of mayo, you won’t see me eat that.

With that in mind, I made this tuna fish salad with some pasta mixed into it. The tuna fish I use is white Albacore in water, not in oil and I use the solid tuna, not the chunks. Reason for the water version is that I can decide what I want to add as fat source. This time just plain olive oil. You can still eat it with bread if that’s what you like.

The ingredients I used are pickled spicy beans, so called Mean Beans, capers, pill pasta, garlic, lemon juice and zest and of course tuna fish and the radicchio leaves as a vehicle for the salad. The result is really nice for a simple tuna fish salad. You’ll have the crunch from the beans and the tingling effect on your tongue, the softness of the pasta, still with a bite, the herbal flavor of the capers, the bitterness of the radicchio and the splash of ‘freshness’ from the lemon all mixed with tuna fish. And I only added just a little bit of salt and pepper it came out very flavorful.

So Radicchio Shells with Tuna Fish Salad is a delicious healthy meal; low fat, high fiber, rich in omega 3 fat and done in no time.
