Veggie and Tuna Salad

A classic tuna salad usually has lettuce and sweet corn as mains. But we made this one differently, by adding green beans, bell pepper, and cherry tomatoes, to make it more satisfying. Still, we have one more secret ingredient! The dressing which is cooked a little bit on the stove before getting into the salad.

I’m Raluca and I just peeled a peach before eating it, and I swear it tasted like the nectar of the gods. When it comes to cooking, I only have one rule: do whatever it takes to turn the whole thing into an enjoyable experience. When I was a little girl, I dreamed of cooking for sailors.
