Dinner a few night’s ago:  Grilled tuna with cucumber and orange salad with Sweet Chili Sauce dressing and garlic naan bread.

My friend Mette gave me her bottle of Maggi Taste of Asia Mild Sweet Chili Sauce before she returned home to Canada for the summer.  It has taken me this long to give it a try.  She had said to put it on rice… apparently I don’t have rice enough to experiment with this… when if I do,  I already have plans for it.  Wanting to try something different with last night’s dinner, I mixed the cucumber slices and oranges together with the sauce and poured it over the grilled Tuna.  I thought it looked so pretty, I had to take a picture. (“Stop playing with the food, Judi!”)

  1. Perfect solution for a hot summer meal – and a good job with challenging lighting and hand-holding at a slow shutter speed.

  2. I do like the curve of the bright, orange plate. Looks delicious.

  3. I am glad that you play with your food…this looks delicious (and this is coming from a girl that HATES tuna)….I’d almost even try that! :)

  4. Okay, this looks really yummy. Perfect summer evening food. I’m still on a modified post-surgery diet, so this is enough to make me want to take a bite out of my monitor!
