    Default Andy's Tuna Pesto


    Andy posted this a while back.

    ---------------8<-----------------

    Serves: 2

    1 can TJs low-sodium Tuna fish
    4 tbls TJs pesto sauce
    2 slices TJs sharp cheddar
    4 slices TJs whole wheat/whole grain bread

    Mix up the first two. Toast bread. Drop cheese on to two sandwiches. Apply
    tuna mix to bread, squish top on and eat!

    -------------->8------------------

    I finally remembered the pesto yesterday while I was at the store.

    I haven't made the sandwich, yet, because I just remembered the experiment
    while eating breakfast. But I did mix the tuna and sauce for later,
    because I wanted a taste. Interesting combination; quite nice. I'm not
    used to using pesto sauce; to me, pesto is a flavor (like jalapeņo, or
    garlic and herb) of jack cheese. That's why I could never remember it at
    the store. And I was never near my grocery list when I'd think of it.

    I messed up and bought grated cheddar rather than sliced, though. I
    wonder if I should just mix that with the tuna/sauce. It would make a
    less crumbly sandwich that way. Or I could melt the cheese on a slice of
    the bread.

    Thanks, Andy. I'll sandwich this afternoon, one way or another. As for
    now, I'm fighting off a strong urge to do so now, even though I just had
    breakfast.

    My milage would stop before it started. It sounds perfectly disgusting
    (although I like both tuna and pesto). Please, god, not together!

    Okay. Something else to ponder, which I kluged together decades ago....
    Try making a salade nicoise but incorporate a bit of pesto into the
    dressing. Now I WANT some.... Hmmm. Maybe I can put together a
    cheating version....

    It does sound pretty bad, but it is actually very good. Okay, YOU try
    it in a chicken salad. Does that sound better?

    I have used pesto iwth various chicken preparations, although not chicken
    salad (because I never thought of it). I just can't envision the
    combinationn of tuna (or any other fish) with pesto, and I'm not going to
    waste food to find out. :-)

    Yeah, that was my original impression, but I decided to try it anyway. I
    might do it again, when I get tired of my usual TS.

    Especially when there's more Tuna than pesto.

    This recipe was definitely invented by a drunk.

    Make that ... "More pesto than tuna". Pesto is not supposed to be
    used in those proportions.
