Tuesday Food Blogs - Cold meal - hot day

As a fully committed salad dodger meals on hot days can be problematic. The weather forecast has been correct over the last few days and it has been hotter than Rome in Yorkshire so it is cool food that I'm looking for when I decided on something really simple.

Penne tuna salad

This salad is simple, refreshing and as fast as it takes to cook and cool the pasta.


1 tin tuna in spring water
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
2 spring onions, chopped
penne pasta
olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a dressing
salt and pepper to taste


The method is really in the veg preparation and a lot of that is down to a matter of personal taste. I was without cucumber which I usually enjoy with tuna but it still worked.
So I boiled the pasta for 10 - 15 minutes then plunged it into iced water to cool and stop the cooking process. Then the veg was prepared along with the dressing and tossed into a bowl.
Serve and enjoy.

God Bless
