|I think they liked the empanadas!|
They come together to enjoy all the delicious Spanish food.
Looks like it was a great success! Food is a great way to bring people together and build community.
Spanish tapas are first-rate party food. Many of them are easy to make. Looks like they had a nice selection of things on toast, including tuna and capers. Very Spanish!
Tuna Salad for Tapas
(serves 6 as an appetizer)
This is a very tasty tuna salad on its own and unlike most tuna salads, it contains no mayonnaise.
1 6-7 ounce can tuna fish, packed in water, drained and flaked
2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons minced dill pickles
½ teaspoon pickle juice
½ teaspoon white wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1 hard-cooked egg, minced
1 teaspoon minced capers
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
12 ½ inch slices of French or Italian bread
whole capers for garnish
Combine all the ingredients except the bread and whole capers in a bowl. You can make the salad ahead and refrigerate it until you are ready to serve it; it gets even better after some time in the refrigerator.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet and toast until they start to brown. Place a bit of tuna salad on each slice of toast and serve.
