I served my family tuna salad, raw vegetables and potato chips for dinner last night. I felt so free! I spent about 10 minutes making the tuna salad and slicing the veggies, put it in the fridge and then had free time until my husband came home and it was time to eat.
What I wondered was why I don’t make dinner easy on myself more often.
So tonight I tried it again. This dish is essentially a stir fry, but chilled. It was so flavorful and refreshing and I could make it completely ahead of time and just assemble when dinner time arrived. It was perfect. My son declared this his favorite salmon ever. This is the same child who wrote this song for me a few months ago when he found out we were having salmon for dinner:
“Pink fish is nasty,
pink fish is gross,
pink fish is what we hate the most!”
His comments tonight were high praise indeed. My daughter inhaled her’s as well. Though she had her sights set on some popsicles we made the other day so she was highly motivated.
But don’t take our word for it, give this one a try for yourself. It’s refreshing, super healthy and totally delicious. Leave the mayo out of the sauce and it’s completely AIP compliant.
Feel free to use whatever vegetables your family loves or you happen to have on hand. You could even serve this with some nori sheets and make your own sushi rolls. Then you could eat with your hands and who doesn’t love that?
