The Media is warning consumers not to eat raw red plum, red roma or red round tomatoes this week. Apparently those types are linked to the 145 reported cases of salmonella nation-wide. Cub Foods has a sign in their produce section that assures the customer that the vine-on, grape, and cherry tomatoes are safe. They also offer refund or replacement if you care to bring your Romas back.
So, today I chose not to add chopped tomato and sliced onion to my pita pocket. The tuna was sweet with mayonnaise, yet spicy-hot with jalapeno. Just the right size, too.
Tuna Salad in a Whole Wheat Pita Pocket
1 can tuna packed in water
1 green onion, chopped finely
1 slice fresh jalapeno, minced
2 T miracle whip
salt and white pepper to taste
2 halves whole wheat pita bread
Drain and rinse the tuna in a fine sieve. Press the water out of the tuna, before flaking it into medium sized chunks with a fork.
Combine the tuna with green onion, jalapeno, milacle whip, salt & pepper.
Line each pita pocket with 1/2 slice of Meunster cheese and lettuce leaves.
Add 1/2 of the tuna salad to each.
