    Reinvent the tuna salad with few unexpected flavor booster.

Can anyone know how Collin’s novels won everyone’s heart and mind?
I mean her three masterpiece books, the hunger games series. Once you start read you can’t stop. I never obsessed in reading any novel before like this one. Am i alone or you too agree?
Do you think there is a trick? Like in food world, when someone have his own tricks in making lovely and humble recipes?
For me, there is no tricks. It’s just I like to play around, With ingredients I mean ( don’t understand me wrong, hahhhhh…..). With a quirky little twist to the classic, that make my son says why this thing didn’t be this way all the time.
Like this little lovely. Classic tuna salad got renovated when became more healthy. substituting the mayo with the healthy extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Not to mention the extra loads of fresh vegetables zapped with earthy hit of black olives, sweet bite of radishes, floral touch of parsley, and aroma perfumes your taste of basil and mint leaves. Once you have the Flavors in your head, they’re impossible to get out. Let the whole classic world wonder why things haven’t always been made this way.
Plus, from my middle eastern side, I like to stuff everything in between the pita pocket. That makes it more likely to be a good choice for light, healthy and quick-lunch idea. Great idea for school lunch too, just stuff it when served to not let the bread soak with the juices and become mushy.
