Romance Writers Weekly


Hello and happy Tuesday. Thanks so much for joining us on our blog. So happy you’re here.

Here is this week’s challenge:

Share your favourite recipe for hot summer days. It can be a drink, a dessert, a meal…anything!

Salads, salads, salads. So many ways to prepare them and no time with a hot oven.

Here’s one of my favorites:

Grilled Tuna Salad

First, you need some fresh tuna steaks. The frozen ones tend to be soggy, so use fresh if you can get them. They’re expensive, so you can use small ones, like ¼ pound per person. Brush with olive oil and season to taste. Grill fast at a high temperature, so they’re seared on the outside and pink in the middle.

Then…and here’s where your creativity comes in. Place romaine or other lettuce on a plate. It can be whole leaves or broken into pieces. I say broken since you’re not supposed to cut lettuce. I have no idea why not. Place grilled tuna steaks on top of the lettuce.

You can add: fresh fruit, like strawberries, blueberries, mango, pieces of melon…



Dried cranberries or other dried fruit


Hearts of palm, sliced

Artichoke hearts…

Use your imagination…and then put on your favorite dressing.

Serve with crackers or bread and it’s a filling healthy meal. Cool and delicious.

Now let’s hop over to the fabulous Brenda Margriet and see what her favorite is…

But first, you have to get this book:
