      I used the last three tomatoes from our garden - sob! They weren't very large, also my tuna was in a 5 oz. can (about 125 g. or so). As I put in the second Tb of lemon juice I realized that it was going to be too much for the smaller amount of tuna. So, my results were very runny but also very delicious. Will make again, for sure!

      I scaled back for 1 vine ripened tomatoe and unfortunately had an oops no capers or celery (both of which I was sure I had) and I used a 95 grams can of tuna in spring water (not chunky) but otherwise thoroughly enjoyed for a lovely light lunch, thank you Kiwi Kathy made for Make My Recipe - Edition 16

      I wanted to make something special for DH's lunch. His riding mower died. I wonder if I should send him a bouquet of lug nuts? Made for A-NZ #42 Recipe Tag.
