It’s summer and that means it’s picnic time! Instead of using mayo, like a classic tuna salad, @IWillNotEatOysters opted for our avocado oil because of its fruity, delicate flavor. She also used our garlic oil for the mustardy dressing, to add a perfect garlic flavor without the harshness from the fresh kind. Pack these sammies up in some parchment paper and throw them in a cooler to bring to the park! Grab a nice bag of chips or some fresh crudités and I'd call that a perfect summer picnic plan! Who’s coming!?
Confit can be anything. It aids whatever-the-thing-being-confited-is to retain its juiciness as it mellows in a soft, slow poach in oil. This tomato version is infinitely versatile!Add the confit to soups or sauces, spoon it atop eggs, legumes, over fish or chicken, onto toast, and more - and save the confit oil! It is a magical flavor booster. Use it to make vinaigrettes, add it to cook rice or beans, to sear fish - the list goes on. This is a smart recipe to save a bounty, and you two great things in one.
Make sure your toast packs as much flavor as whatever is piled on top by brushing it with La Tourangelle walnut oil and sprinkling it with a healthy dose of salt and pepper.A bit of white miso, made from fermented soy beans, gives the chicken salad the perfect savory punch it needs to complete this simple, tasty meal.
