Boring old Tuna...Not anymore!

So I entered a Ritz Crackers contest last week on their Facebook page. The prizes are BIG for this one, there will be 10 winners, winning from $1,000 up to $20,000 + a trip to California to meet Guy Fieri! After my first entry, I wanted to do a second and was looking for a way to jazz up boring old tuna salad. I decided to mix in a Moroccan flavor combo called "chermoula", and it turned out delicious! Wish me luck that it wins!


2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

36 whole almonds

1 tbsp white sugar

10 oz chunk light tuna

3 tbsp mayonnaise

2 tbsp onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely minced

2 tbsp cilantro, chopped

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1 tbsp dried parsley flakes

2 tsp hot sauce

36 Ritz Roasted Vegetable Crackers

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a bowl, mix honey and olive oil. Pour almonds into bowl and stir to coat. Spread almonds in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

3. Remove from oven and sprinkle almonds with sugar. Toss and let cool.

4. In a bowl, combine tuna, mayonnaise, onion, garlic, cilantro, turmeric, paprika, cumin, parsley and hot sauce. Mix well.

5. Using a melon baller or spoon, put a scoop of tuna salad on each Ritz Cracker. Garnish with a honey-roasted almond.
