Caribbean Photo Gallery

March 2011 my sister got married on the beautiful island of St. Lucia. These are photos from the different Caribbean Islands we visited while cruising with Royal Caribbean.

To Apple Pecan & Raisin Tuna Salad

Nothing turns me off faster from a recipe than mayo. The way it looks just irks me the wrong way. When I order a burger or sandwich, that white clumpy stuff better come no where near my bread.   Therefore, I refuse to use it in my tuna salad. Some say I’m crazy because I am missing one of the essential ingredients but I say MUSTARD is sooo much better.

This tuna salad will keep you feeling light and energized.


1 can of tuna, drained (I use white chunk albacore in water)

1/4 cup apple, cubed

1/8 cup raisins

1/8 cup pecans, chopped

1 tbsp. dijonmustard

crushed red pepper flakes to taste

pepper to taste

1 tbsp. hemp seed (optional)

If making a salad:

lettuce (I used half of a romaine heart

honey mustard drizzle (1 pt. honey to 1 pt. mustard – I used 1/2 tbsp)

If making a sandwich:

your bread of choosing


Mix all of your ingredients together and top on a bed of lettuce or on your bread of choosing.

Drizzle with the honey mustard or leave plain (your choice), top with the hemp seed (optional) and dig in to a nice big healthy and fun salad!
