Today was my first trip to the Dupont Circle Farmers Market.
My expectations were far surpassed. After battling the crowds, tasting a multitude of samples and snapping a few pictures, I ended up with an apple, a bunch of arugula, a tomato and the most exquisite homemade Cabra la Mancha chevre cheese. What brought my attention to this cheese was a herd of women ooh’ing and ahh’ing around an old woman’s stand, and it was soon clear why. She simply said “I make good cheese.” She wasn’t lying.
After a quick bus ride back from Market, I whipped up a couple tuna melts with my brand-new organic tomato.
What’s-in-the-fridge Tuna Melt
Bread (or English muffin)
1 can white tuna
1 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. dijon mustard (to taste)
salt & pepper
1 tsp. capers
(Optional: celery, red pepper, onion, relish…the possibilities are endless)
2 slices of cheese (I used pepper jack)
1 tomato, sliced
Mix together tuna, mayo, mustard, salt & pepper, capers and other desired ingredients. Top a piece of toast with tuna, tomato and cheese. Broil or toast in toaster oven until cheese is melted.
