angela boggiano's tuna, cannellini bean and red onion salad on tomato bread

Mini-update today because rather than cooking tonight, we've got the mighty Mani-Itchers and McPartsons coming over for a take-away this evening.

Instead I'm going to wow you all (hopefully) with a lunch thingy: Consider it a tangential benefit of redundancy as lunch is getting big in the SW14, mainly because I've really got nothing better to do than cook and go running...

Anyhoo, idly flicking through some back issues of Delicious I came across this Angela Boggiano doozy from the 2008 Italian issue. Even better, we've got everything in the cupboard - apart from the Tomato Bread of course, because who the flock ever has tomato bread.

To be honest it's not massively different to some of the other tuna and white bean salads we've had, but the addition of the sour-dough smeared some sun-dried tomato paste actually makes it a pretty good addition to the cannon. Deffo one for the Yummington.

wine time
*Obvs* we're not drinking at lunchtime, but if we were we'd be totally going super-citric and dry as this has got a hefty whack of lemon juice, plus the cherry tomatoes also have a fair dose of acidity. If you're feeling flush, don't rub it in but feel free to get a Sauternes as it'll be divine. Those of us spending the Government's cash, steer clear of the Stella, but seek out a white Bordeaux as the mixture of Sauvignon and Semillon will do the same job at half the price.
