cereta: Garlic (Garlic)
[personal profile] cereta
This is one of my favorite "two-fer" dinners, and it occurs to me that it would make a great batch lunch with a little tweaking. I had it today, in fact!

All ingredients are to taste. I myself use as much over a bulb of garlic, because...garlic.

Bruschetta/Caprese:
Tomatoes
Garlic
Basil
Fresh mozzarella (OMG, get the fresh stuff!)
Olive Oil

Dice the tomatoes and mozzarella. Put garlic, basil, and olive oil in a food processor, and make a paste. Mix it all together, add salt as desired.

Tuna Salad:
Canned tuna
Onion
Mayo
Lemon Juice

You know the drill here ;). Make gigantic batches of each. Store separately or together - they mix delightfully.

Now, here's where it gets interesting. These are great separately or together on a good cracker or crostini. Personally, for work lunches, I just crumble up some toasties of some kind into the mix ;). This will last a good two days. For the third day, just as the tomatoes are getting a little mushy, cook some pasta (I like whole wheat angel hair with this), drain, and add the whole mess to the pasta. You don't even have to cook it if you're going to be heating it up at lunch! Divide into containers and enjoy. It's kind of ridiculously delicious, especially the third and fourth days.
