    Jodi Consoli's Note:

    This is what I put together for the Ready Set Cook Summer 2005 recipe contest. It is good by it's self, on crackers, on bread, or on a bed of lettuce. Great for a side dish, a main dish, or a summer day brunch.

      If I had not made a double batch for a pot luck tonight, I would not have had any to bring home. It is good as a take along dish as it is ok if it sits out for hours. Everyone wanted to know what it was. I think they all liked it better than I do. For me, it is good, not great. It is a nice change of pace....the next day....I used this to fill celery and the crispy crunchy celery really wake it up!!!
      I will make it again and will, likely, spice it up a little more. I imagine wrapping a teaspoon full in lettuce or nesting it in endive would also be good!!!!

      Am making it now for the church potluck and had to taste it without the tuna (as I am allergic to tuna). It does taste pretty good, and I can see how the tuna flavor would, surprisingly, blend in. It Is just a bit bland. Thank you for posting such an unusual recipe. And it was the first time that I'd eaten capers! Will try it again with packaged salmon.

      This was pretty good. I used tuna with lemon in it. Next time I will use pepper and kalamata olives in the salad.
