Green Beans and Cherry Tomatoes Salad

>> April 25, 2011

Dedicating this "tambog-tambog" recipe to Joyce O.

I don't know how many of my friends can eat salad alone on lunch or dinner, but for my friends (and readers) who are currently working on losing some weight, here's a substantial salad recipe that's healthy and filling. Just a nice-to-know, substantial salads are salads that are nourishing enough and can be eaten alone (without matching it with pasta or what not). It's like a full meal.

- french green beans (they are thin and short)
- cherry tomatoes
- 1 canned tuna, drained
- 1 1/2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil.
- ground coriander (optional)
- garlic powder (optional)
- cumin (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste

1. Wash the green beans and steam. Be careful not to overcooked, we want it cooked but still crunchy. Set aside.
2. Wash cherry tomatoes. You may cut it in half or just as is.
3. Put the canned tuna in a separate bowl. Add a dash of ground coriander, cumin, and garlic powder to add flavor. If you don't have these spices available, you can just use salt and pepper.
4. Pour the extra virgin olive oil and mix.
5. In a separate bowl, put the green beans, tomatoes, and tuna, toss them well.
6. Top it with freshly ground pepper.

You may serve this with slices of red onions.

Note: Tambog-tambog is just a slang for putting things all together without complication.

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
