We talked about mixing fruit with tuna in a salad before. Now, it’s toward the end of the season, but with any luck, you can get your hands on a couple of unripe peaches and try this unbelievable recipe.
Peaches with salt, yes, I agree it may sound strange – but they do taste like heaven, as Celia Barbour wrote for the New York Times in 2006. And they’re a perfect match for St. Jude tuna.
Tuna Salad (Serves 4)
- Can of original or smoked St. Jude tuna
- Sea salt – no more than 1/2 tsp
- 1 small red onion, in thin slices
- 2 peaches, not yet ripe, in thin slices
Place handful of argula on each plate. Use a fork to break the tuna and place chunks in the center of each bed of argula. Arrange onion around tuna. Sprinkle peaches only, very lightly with salt and divide, arranging around tuna.
