My dad loves his homemade tuna fish. He is not the chef in the family, although he makes great matzo brei, and grills like a master chef, but he has perfected a wonderful tuna fish and is quite proud of himself. On a recent visit to California, he pulled me aside and challenged my very basic tuna, mayo, and lemon juice combo that I threw together for my hungry family. He proudly shared his California Style Tuna and now I must share it with you. It includes lots of crunch, and both salty, savory and sweet flavors. It’s best on a bed of lettuce with carrot and celery sticks on the side. But my dad loves it on toasted whole grain bread (also California style), with extra lettuce, tomatoes and sliced pickles on the side…and of course a big pile of potato chips too.

And of course, you could also, just open a can, drain it of any liquid, add mayonnaise and lemon juice, maybe a pinch of salt and serve.
