this low cost yet delicious side dish is perfect with chicken and fish dishes. can also be a vegetarian main course. you can cook the orzo in veggie or chicken stock if preferred.
this is a family recipe that originally came from my aunt gloria, a wonderful hostess and great cook. this spread is a little different from ordinary tuna spread and is great served with crackers or used as a filling for tea sandwiches.
a nice quick summer lunch, or can be served as an elegant appetizer salad. if you can find tuna in olive oil, it's well worth it in this recipe, but when draining the tuna, save the olive oil for the dressing. cook time is actually chill time.
this is best served hot, but equally good cold! this is an authentic german recipe...everyone says it is the best! it is also great cooked ahead of time and then microwaved...it gives the flavors time to blend.
i started making this recipe in 2000, when it first appeared in bon apetit magazine. my family claims they won't let me come to thanksgiving dinner unless i bring this with me! it is easy to make ahead and everyone is sure to love it.
