A Summery Lunch Treat


I have to thank my Aunt Jane Sugar for this meal. Last week while in Perdido Key, she sent out this treat to the beach. I could not get enough of the mixture.

Like with any great cook, amounts of ingredients are not known. In the words of Sugar, you take a lil bit of this and add a lil bit of that. You get it!

Doesn’t this look divine?

The ingredients are:

  • 1 packet of tuna {I use Starkist white albacore white tuna packs.}
  • Half of a cucumber, chopped
  • Trinity {I buy the prepared chopped onions, celery, and bell peppers.}
  • Pickles {I used Wickles, wickedly good pickles.}
  • Bacon Bits
  • Shredded carrots
  • Craisins
  • Hummus {in place of mayonnaise}

Mix all together in a bowl. I add cracked pepper to taste.

Fill a bell pepper, add shredded carrots for garnish, and voila!

Though I used tuna, I also suggest chicken/chicken salad.

It is simply to prepare, and easy to add or subtract ingredients. I even like it on tortillas.

Summery lunch, y’all!


  1. What a pretty presentation! If you ever have leftover tuna steak, use it in this salad. It will bring this salad to a whole new level, and you may never use canned tuna again! Have a great day! xoxo

  2. This sounds so yummy and festive. I want to have a luncheon party!

  3. Thanks for the recipe! Looks impressive and yet not that difficult to make!

  4. Oh my goodness, that looks so good. I love cold dishes in the summer! This is one I will try for sure!

  5. That looks delicious and healthy, Ron! This would make a great lunch for those days when I want to refrain from eating bread.

  6. It does look very yummy....will have to try it!!! Have a great weekend :o)

  7. That does, indeed, look divine. I would use chicken since I "don't do" fish...but HUMUS ?
    I've never tasted it so can I just use mayo ?? Still be good ?

  8. Yum! Will have to try this soon :)

  9. Wow that looks so fancy in the bell pepper! Have a great weekend!

  10. Perfect lunch for summer! I love the presentation in the yellow pepper! Thanks for the recipe!

  11. Oh my word, that looks so yummy!! Perfect summer meal. Even better served on the beach. I am filing this away for those nights when I want something healthy, quick and does not require the oven!!

  12. Looks wonderful Ron, not only yummy looking but healthy and easy. Great presentation. xo
