Let me also share a quick punch idea for your 4th of July parties!

Quick, Easy Punch

All you do is get two containers of any type of sherbet, 2 gallons of ginger ale or 7-Up (I prefer ginger ale.), and a large punch bowl. Put the sherbet in the bowl and pour ginger ale/7-up over the top of the sherbet about 10 minutes before you are ready to serve it. There you have it! A nice, quick punch for the party. I always buy extra containers of sherbet and ginger ale too so you can make more when you run out.…

Recipe for the World’s Greatest Tuna Salad

I’ve always loved tuna salad. It’s a quick lunch — a sandwich — that doesn’t seem like an ordinary lunch sandwich. Tuna salad is much more of a meal!

For years I’ve made tuna salad every which way, depending on what ingredients I have on hand and in many cases just trying to get it right.

A friend of mine gets tuna salad at a local organic grocery store, and she mentioned an ingredient — white beans — which I had never heard of or considered before in tuna salad.

That added to those other perfect components that I customarily use have led to create the best tuna salad in the world today!

This is what I did:

Begin with boiling three eggs.

Get out a medium-sized bowl. I recommend using something with a lid, like Tupperware, in which you can store your leftovers in the refrigerator. You’ll probably have leftovers, depending on how many people you’re serving.

Put one can of tuna in the bowl.

Chops red onions — about a third of a large one — into the bowl.

Chop two stalks of celery and add to the bowl.

Open a can of navy beans. I’m sure you could substitute other white beans, like great northern beans, butter beans, or white kidney beans. I personally just prefer the navy beans.

Rinse the beans in a colander and drain. In a separate small bowl, mash the beans with a fork until they are creamy and smooth. Set aside.
