Drunken Tuna Dip or Sandwich Spread

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by flower7

I adopted this from the Recipezaar account and updated the ingredients/instructions after making it. Updated again to add capers to ingredients. Serve as a spread for sandwiches or with crackers, veggies, bread cubes, and/or cheese sticks as a dip.

Made this for Chives Herb of the Month. As with both reviewers, it needed something, but I wanted the tuna to stand out too. I added some kalamata olives, lemon zest, and some fresh parsley and that was it. Just a bit more salt and that fresh parsley for a little more flavor. I served it on baguettes lightly toasted. I think on a sandwich it would be very rich for me, but loved it on baguettes or on crackers for a dip. None left, isn't that the perfect sign! Thx
