Mediterranean Tuna & Chickpea Salad

Mediterranean Tuna & Chickpea Salad

I know I’ve been missing for the past week. I was in New York on business and my brother’s birthday. I worked a lot, I ate a lot. In case you’re curious, some of my favorites were Porchetta in the East Village, Flex Mussels on the Upper East Side (the Thai Mussels, fries and donuts for dessert are the way to go) and Fonda in Park Slope. (I travel far and wide for good food.) I meant to post this recipe at some point last week, but with all that eating, I just never found the time! So here it is – a week later but worth the wait.

I’m one of those people who brings her lunch to work every day. I always have, even when I was a student with a tiny little kitchen. I just don’t like eating out every day. I also don’t like to drop $10 on not-so-good lunch. But I also don’t like to eat the same thing every day, so I’m always looking for meals that are quick and easy, travel well and keep in the fridge. This salad does all of those things perfectly. And it’s really tasty to boot.

Chickpeas and tuna, whole wheat orzo, piquillo peppers, capers, carrots, sherry vinegar and parsley. Toss everything into a bowl and you’re done. One of my new favorites for summer!

  1. I’m a bagged luncher as well and usually just end up taking leftovers for dinner. This is a meal I could get excited about though!

  2. I don’t bring my lunch as I go home everyday-lucky me-but still I need recipes like this to prepare in advance and also for my hubby who DOES bring his lunch. Thanks for this.
