There are many ways to make a light summer day when we are referring to food. The days are getting warmer here on the island and, besides the heat, the season is full of colors and I think wonderful putting them at table.
With colored thought this was all that I prepared:
Penne with Honey sauce
I prepared the penne to the directions on the package and, when cold, I put aside in the fridge. Sauté the canned tuna and sliced cabbage in the lemon oil. When ready and cold, removed the penne from the fridge and, in a bowl, mixed carefully braised tuna, cherry tomatoes and diced cheeses. It’s a super nice dish to the eyes and the face of the Summer.
For the sauce, I used honey, balsamic vinegar, lemon olive oil and salt. This sauce recipe, I collected in this website here but I made some changes because I wanted a sauce a bit more sweet (my husband is a “sweet tooth”). So the recipe I made of this way:
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons honey
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
5 tablespoons lemon olive oil
Mix the ingredients in a pan and serve.
The sauce is fantastic! The result surprised even me!
To serve this delicious at table, I folded napkins. They are very pretty.
I used “Folding lotus flower” (click here). Have a look ! =)
