Preparing for Christmas part I – Tuna and Bean salad
For some time T has been talking about a salad of beans and tuna and even if he cannot be very specific about it we set out to make an attempt.
½ finely sliced fennel
1 finely sliced red pepper
1 diced red onion
1 finely chopped big clove of garlic
2 cups of kidney beans
2 cups of butter beans
2 tins of tuna (in water)
A big handful of chopped broadleafed parsley
All is tossed in a bowl with the dressing.
The dressing is made of
a squeeze of lemon
some white wine vinegar
a bit of water and whitewine
We, T, K and Fine, were very satisfied. It is a successful salad, but there is a price to pay for eating all those beans...
With the salad we had some bread from Meyer's Bakery and to drink a bottle of Thelema Chardonnay 2008. Overall we rate the salad 8/10, the wine 7,5/10 and together 7,5/10
We finished the meal with a slice of Knuthenborg sheep cheese, which is sold at an astronomical prize at Irma. And it is good. But is it that good?
