Tuna and Radish Salad, Easy picken’s from the garden — 14 Comments

  1. Lucky you, to have such robust herbs and radishes in your garden! My own garden is not quite there yet!

  2. So many good tasting things in this salad, along with my beloved canned tuna. Sounds just wonderful. I need to plant some radishes. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. I like radish leaves more than the root, I can handle it in a soup. I am green with envy, that you don’t have slugs. Yesterday I killed, yes meanwhile I am a killer, 20 slugs and I don’t feel ashamed.

  4. Lydia, I have been lucky, touch wood. But now I think my tomatoes are ill…sob!
    Thanks Christine
    Kalyn, 5 years ago I wouldn’t have thought that tuna and radish would make such a good couple! I continue to learn…
    Meredith, I am going to have to try radish leaf soup, you’re the second person to mention it. I have a new crop of radishes coming up in a week or so.
    Ulrike, I do have little, tiny slugs, but I’ve never seen a big one… not like I’ve seen in Germany. Those things are scary. You are a brave woman to take them on and 20 in one day! I am impressed…and a little scared…

  5. Oh, brava! Lucky you. I am such a failure growing chives, although my mom is as successful as yours. (Well, I haven’t managed to kill my garlic chives for several years, so maybe there’s hope.)
    What a super duper salad. Ole!

  6. Really nice salad, I have been looking at radishes now for some time, never being able to decide whether I should buy them or not but now I will!

  7. What a mouthwatering salad. I love thuna and radish, so I have another must try for this week. Thanks for sharing. :))

  8. Thanks Truffle, and maybe next spring(your season) you can 😉
    CC, garlic chives are the Borg of the plant world. They do not DIE! They’re what I use early summer when the regular ones tend to go to flower… then they look pretty so I leave them…nothing to do with laziness!
    Ilva, they had a nice crunhc and bit of spice to a lot of things: green salads, pasta salads, couscous…
    Helene, I hope you enjoy it, thanks.

  9. Oh… Your garden mush be lovin’ it right now!!! I can’t WAIT to start
    a garden. I miss my San Diego garden… Oh well.. All looks D-lish!!!
    Happy munching!! — Leesa

  10. Lucky you to have fresh produce right at home 🙂 I live in an apartment…no balcony, not even a window box…anything you can suggest that will survive nicely potted and indoors?
    That’s a delicious looking salad 🙂

  11. Leesa, I could use some San Diego sunshine right now! My poor garden is suffering from an abundance of cloudy days.
    Joey, cherry tomatoes would do well kept trimmed and staked, as would most herbs: basil, chives, parsley, summer savory; maybe even pots of thyme and oregano. In Ireland I grew lettuce in a pot – never enough for a salad but nice for sandwiches and garnishes. You could also do peppers…that’s all I can think of right now – good luck!
