Chicken of the Sea. A Simple Lunch.

Tuna fish is what I would classify a pantry staple.  It's my go-to lunch at least once a week because of its versatility.  A blank canvas, allowing for numerous sandwich and salad possibilities.  One of my favourite pairings, includes apples,grapes and pecans.  This refreshing sandwich is perfect for summer. The sweet grapes mixed with the crunch of the tart apples is great on the pallet. A good quality bread finishes this sandwich off.  This week I opted for a multi-grain with nuts and sunflower seeds embedded throughout.  Yum!  All in all a wonderful mid-day meal.
