Green Goddess Tuna

Friday, July 9, 2010

I admit, I've not been blogging much, either here or at Low Carb Bento. That has mostly been because I've been very sick the past few weeks. I live in the country, and in order to see my specialist or have extensive tests run, I have to drive about two hours into the city. The long day of waiting, scans, blood work and doctors tends to wear me out, and topped with my many other real life obligations, it's taken me a bit to get myself back on track, especially when it's easier for me to just grab fast food (which I did) or indulge in sweets (which I did.)

However, I did get the new Atkins book, and read it, and I noticed how much better I feel on my diet. It makes a significant difference in my health, so I am back on track starting today. I am still run down and tired, so making food that is easy and tasty has been the goal. I am a huge fan of bento style lunches (as is evident with my other blog), so I wanted something that would work well in my lunch as well.

This version of tuna isn't really that different from normal tuna, which we all made with a blob of mayo and a can of tuna. It's amazing how different using a few herbs and spices can make a humble food.

I named this Green Goddess Tuna because it reminds me a bit of homemade Green Goddess dressing. It is best made the night before and left in the fridge so all the flavors can mellow, or made in the morning for lunchtime.
