This week's featured recipe and tips by:

Sharen Iverson

Culinary Resource Coordinator at Town & Country Market on Bainbridge Island

Sharen has been cooking since she was 5, seriously! She had her own garden and was barbecuing fish in the backyard when she was 10. She got into catering as an adult when she served on the board of directors of Public Radio in Alaska. Since 2002, she’s been the culinary coordinator at Town & Country Market on Bainbridge Island. She especially loves cooking Asian and Italian cuisine, and talking with customers at the culinary kiosk. And she loves cooking for her granddaughter, Evelyn, who was born in 2008.

Serve on a bed of fresh lettuce leaves and pour a lovely Rose or Pinot Noir

This is a great recipe for potlucks.  It's delicious even without the tuna for your vegetarian and vegan friends - and another added benefit would be the dish would keep longer without dairy or seafood present!
