Poor Man or College Girl

I’m going with College Girl’s Tuna Antipasto, because it’s cheap and almost always easy..

We grew up with this, summer picnics at the beach always featured a version of this, with the infamous stoned wheat thins, followed by a root beer popcicle (which have disappeared for some ridiculous reason- ridiculous because they were the best thing going).  We called it PoorMan’s Antipasto, I’m just changing it up to give the college girls a classy shout out.

So what’s in it?

1 Can of tuna (packed in water)
1 Carrot, shredded
1 Chunk of red (yellow, or orange) pepper, diced
1/2 Stalk of celery, diced
Some diced purple onion (if you’ve got it)
Dill, Salt and Pepper all to taste
1 T miracle whip (this is key- sweet and tangy)

You drain your tuna, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and you have a delicious little salad or cracker topper- perhaps sandwich or wrap filling- the world’s your oyster with this one.

What’s your favorite cheap and easy thing to make?  I know someone who makes a mighty appealing slut pasta..
