My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

The World's Best Tuna Salad

Well that's what Chef Dirt says from the Outer Banks. It really is a great tuna salad. I will say if you ever make tuna salad with fresh tuna you will not be buying Star Kist in the near future.

This recipe does make about 4 pounds of salad so unless you are having a party you might want to cut it in half. It will keep in the refrigerator for 7 days however.

The World's Best Tuna Salad
4 pounds
print recipe

2 pounds fresh tuna, steamed well done
16 ounces sweet salad cubes, drained
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon capers (don't omit)
3/4 cup mayonnaise (Chef Dirt uses Dukes)
4 ounces diced pimentos, drained

Flake tuna and mix well with all ingredients, use your hands. Store in refrigerator up to 7 days. Every one's favorite.
