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..
