    That does sound good for a hot day's lunch. I have some cukes but no
    radish. However, I picked the first ripe tomato in the garden today,
    and there's a couple that should be ready tomorrow so I might add them
    in place of the radish.

    I made a big tuna salad tonight. I bought the kind that I can eat because
    Angela didn't want any. It contains peas in the broth so she can't have it.
    I used plenty of chopped vegetables. Green onions, celery, Roma tomatoes,
    red pepper and parsley. Added a couple of glugs of olive oil and plenty of
    squirts of lemon juice. Also salt and pepper.

    Had I been making it for Angela, I would have used only green onion, celery
    and a ton of cucumber as the vegetables. She loves cucumber!

    That's sooo unfair! This past Sat. we finally had a day that was about 70
    degrees. It is back to somewhat chilly again and rainy. Not enough warmth
    to grow anything yet, but over the weekend my neighbor put up one of those
    topsy turvy tomato thingies.

    I can't remember the exact name. I think it might be organic. Has extra
    virgin olive oil in it. No HFCS and no soybean oil. It's not available
    everywhere though. Only a few stores around here carry it. I think there
    are three varieties. I get the Italian one for pasta salad. Very good and
    I am picky about dressings. Don't like most of them.

    I had a Greek salad at a Greek restaurant a while back and there was a
    creamy, light brown dressing on it. I have produced similar from adding
    balsamic vinegar to mayo and mixing well. I think it would go well with this
    recipe as well.

    LOL Julie, I know, it has been cooler than normal here as well. This
    won't be a good tomato year I don't think. It was 50F last night
    here.

    The plants have lots of flowers, but the fruit won't set. The
    heirloom varieties seem to be the worst. The Romas have a few small
    green fruits. It is the Early Girl that is producing -- it has a
    shorter growing season and can set fruit at lower nighttime temps
    supposedly.

    On the other hand, I had a bumper crop of greens this year. I
    actually got tired of eating greens.

    Well, since it's a Kraft recipe, I imagine that would be their
    recommendation, however I don't use bottled dressing, I make my own, as I'm
    sure most here do.

    Tabasco or any sauce made with peppers and vinegar

    I saw a show on how it is made..its like making wine..very cool...they
    take old whiskey barrels and put the jalapeno mash into them with vinegar
    and seal top with salt and let ferment for months .

    Oh sometimes I add mustard..each small change effects the taste but all is
    delicious!

    I like it on meat and if you add soy sauce and more sesame and less mayo it's
    a yummy asian sauce.
