Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Sandwich Filling (recipe from allrecipes.com, pic from rebeccabent.com)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon prepared Dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 (6 ounce) can oil-packed tuna (mine was water packed)
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and diced
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup diced celery
1 teaspoon sweet pickle relish
4 large croissants
4 leaves lettuce
4 slices Swiss cheese
In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, curry powder, salt and pepper. Add tuna, shallot, apple, walnuts, celery and pickle relish and toss until all ingredients are coated with dressing.
Lightly toast the croissants. Split in half, place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of the croissant and fill with tuna salad. Top with a slice of Swiss cheese and the top half of the croissant. Serve with a dill pickle and potato chips.
I haven't had tuna in a while because it's not really that exciting. Well, this recipe impressed me, and I will make it again. I didn't even have tuna, shallot, or swiss cheese and the flavor still came out great. The apple and walnuts (or pecans) added a great flavor along with the subtle curry taste. Yum!
I am a collector of recipes. I am constantly finding more recipes to try from blogland, newspapers, cookbooks, magazines...and when I make them, IF I think they are worth making again, I will post them here to my online cookbook!
I like to use ingredients that most people usually use and have available, though I like to experiment with more exotic ingredients on occasion as well.
I really tend to favor the sweet side of food. So you'll find a lot of dessert recipes here.
I am all about trying new recipes. If you've got to make dinner every night, why not mix it up a bit?
