Friday Night Feasts~ Gluten Free Tuna Salad

Basketball Regional Semifinals are the topic of most every conversation around town. I am curious, is your team still in the hunt?

To go along with all of the wonderful game foods this weekend at our house there will be at least 1 healthy choice...Gluten Free Tuna Salad. It's never too early to start working on a healthy diet. Now don't start feeling sorry for my friends and family, there will be a well stocked kitchen overflowing with delicious Gluten Free game food...Brownies, pizza, wings, meatballs, chips, cheese, dips, salsa and possibly a veggie tray.



Tuna Salad
How many different ways do you serve Tuna Salad? By the scoop on a bed of lettuce, stuffed in the cavity of Avocado or Tomato, on toasted bread as a sandwich, in a croissant, on crackers, as a dip for vegetables, baked?

Basic blend or mixture can easily increase or decrease volume as needed.

3 large cans of Chunky Tuna in water, drained removing as much water as possible
1 small sweet Onion, minced
½ cup minced Celery
1 small jar of diced Pimento Peppers, drained removing as much liquid as possible
¼ cup Pickle Relish, drain slightly
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
Mayonnaise

In large bowl break apart Tuna chunks before adding Onion, Celery, Pimento, Pickle Relish, and Black Pepper. Blend these ingredients well. Slowly add Mayonnaise until lightly coated, you do not want the mixture to be dominated by the Mayonnaise to the point the colors change or appear milky. Place in tightly covered container and store in the refrigerator.


Variation:
* Use Dill Pickle Relish
* Add 1 teaspoon Hot Sauce
* Add 1 teaspoon Dill
* Omit Pickle Relish
* Add 1 tablespoon fresh Lemon juice
* Add 1 tablespoon Lemon Zest
* Top with crushed Cashews

Friday Night Feasts~ Gluten Free Chocolate and Popcorn

Who can think about eating a real meal at the start of tournament season? All I have is visions of junk food! Corn is a vegetable and chocolate is plant based so the way I see it is this is a perfectly healthy junk food! hahahahaaaa Seriously though, this is delicious! Slightly salty, crunchy, sweet and chocolate! If you are expecting a large crowd you will want to prepare an extra batch or two.


Chocolate and Popcorn
2 – 3 servings of Popped Plain Popcorn, more if serving in large group
3 cups of melted Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Place prepared Plain Popped Popcorn, [no salt or butter] in a large bowl. Slowly drizzle melted Chocolate Chips over Popcorn toss and allow to cool until chocolate sets.

Variation:
*Also add melted White Chocolate Chips and drizzle over Popcorn
*Add melted Dark Chocolate Chips and drizzle over Popcorn
*Add mini Chocolate Chips once chocolate has cooled and set


Enjoy the games!
