Sundried Tomato Tuna Salad I first got the idea to mix tuna and avocado together from my friend Jeff Siegel, who is a complete genius in many areas- not the least of which is eating.

The thick milk (20-22% fat) is used most often in dessert and sauces (I have really good luck using it in recipes that call for heavy cream, for example), and the thin milk (5-7% fat) is … [Read more...]
