My mom loves to order a certain tea room specialty--a green salad featuring a taste each of egg, tuna, and chicken salad. It would have been cheaper to choose one salad, but it was her birthday. Fortunately, all three make for low-cost lunches.
I was surprised. Unlike flaky albacore, the much finer Aldi chunk light made for an almost whipped texture. It was a good contrast with the chunkier pecan chicken salad and curried egg salad.
I placed a small scoop of each salad on romaine, with sides of sliced tomatoes and steamed pea pods. A fresh fruit skewer lay across the top of each plate.
