Did you know that...
When you make your own mayonnaise at
home, the lemon and oil do not mix or blend in together, but when you
add in egg yolks, because of their lecithin content they act as a
natural chemicals needed. If you have ever made
mayonnaise at home, share your tips and recipes here for home made

Lemons pair so well  with seafood and
this recipe combines both.. I use this dish as an appetizer or
sometimes as a main course for a light dinner meal. Either way, it is
easy and quick to make and will impress your guests. Serve with a
glass of chilled white wine.

Limoncini with Creamy Tuna

4 lemons

12 ounces of tuna packed in olive

2 hard boiled eggs

4 ounces of green olives

1 tsp capers

3 tablespoons olive oil

Cut lemons lengthwise and 'clean out'
the pulp inside. In the food processor, place drained tuna, pitted
green olives, hard boiled eggs, capers. Blend until creamy
consistency. Placei n bowl and dilute with olive oil and juice of one
lemon. Fill 8 lemon halves with this mixture. Place a bed of salad
greens on a plate and place 2 lemon halves on top of greens on each
plate, serve.
