Comments
Instead of sea salt you may use Spike Original Magic.
This is a leaner, more flavorful interpretation of the classical tuna salad.
Stored in the refrigerator in a glass container and topped by a thin layer of EVOO the salad lasts for about a week.
Glass containers are always recommended, as toxic chemicals from plastic containers tend to leach into conserved refrigerated food.
It is important to sterilize the storage jars with boiling water and put them in a warm oven to dry.
Wine and Beverage Pairing
Sparkling Prosecco di Valdobbiadene, frothy Rosato Emiliano IGT made with a blend of Lambrusco grapes, or the red Monica di Sardegna DOC.
