For those of you that have been to Malta and tasted the tuna ftiras then this will probably look very familiar, it's basically a ftira minus the bread. A simple tuna salad- photo shown above.
Maltese inspired Tuna salad
1/2 a small red onion finely chopped
big handful of fresh mint leaves chopped
few sprigs of parsley
spoon full of capers
3-5 green olives chopped
1-2 tomatoes chopped
can of tuna
some olive oil
dash of lemon juice or red wine vinegar
*if you have pickled onion, it can be added as well as a few broad beans
or white butter beans.
if you have it on bread, be sure its the kind with a good hard crust and spread on some tomato conserve and add a dash of olive oil ( as is always done here).
Another newly acquired favourite inspired from living in Malta is fresh ricotta sprinkled with some fresh ground pepper and salt on bread, straight simple and so tasty (especially if you have some good rustic bread).
3last thing is that I have to admit to being pretty won over with the preview of the new film Where the wild things are- I soooo loved the book as a kid and my children do as well and it seems they actually made a film that does justice to the book. Still have to see it though.. hope it comes here soon! Here is a link to the trailer I am talking about.
