Throwback Thursday: A Photo and a Recipe


This was taken many a moon ago on one of Julio and my first dates. 🙂 We made a picnic and went up to Shenandoah National Park. We drove up Skyline Drive and hiked down to Dark Hollow Falls, which is amazing, if you’ve never been.

Julio brought a special concoction that I thought would be disgusting, but actually turned out to be delicious! This has been a recurring theme for me…that’s why I know I always need to try something before saying I can’t eat it! 🙂 It is easy to make and fun to eat.

Tostadas de Ensalada de Atún (tuna salad tostadas)

Two cans of tuna in water (drained)

1 can Veg-all (or mixed veggies) – drained

1 can corn – drained

2-4 tbsp pickled jalapeño pepper juice

1/2 cup or so of mayonnaise (Makormick’s with lime is the best!)

Pickled jalapeños, to taste

Valentina (or any picante sauce), to taste

Tostadas (flat, fried corn tortillas) (you can also eat it with saltine crackers)

Mix tuna, veggies, mayo, pepper juice together in a bowl. Laying a tostada flat on your plate, or on the palm of your hand, spoon on the salad and top with Valentina and jalapeños. Enjoy!
