I've been mixing tuna with my cottage cheese at lunch for years and I've also enjoyed pairing fresh basil with pineapple. One day, I put it all together and came up with this recipe. Sometimes, I eat it in a bowl, sometimes with crackers, or bread, but anyway it's eaten, it hits all the high notes and is wonderfully satisfying.

It was different and we'd probably enjoy it more with something crunchy added (chopped celery maybe). Read More
