One of the things I love most about travelling is getting to try different foods in cities around the world that inspire me when I’m back in the kitchen at home. On my recent visit to Barcelona, I fell in love with a tiny little bar called El Bitxo, that was around the corner from my hotel. Although their kitchen is no bigger than a tiny cubby hole (I’m totally serious), they serve some of the most amazing tapas I’ve ever had.
Although their menu is small and limited (as you can imagine, considering their set up) they are best known for their smoked salmon that’s cured in coffee, cod fish cured in Earl Grey tea, and the most delectable tarragon tuna salad I’ve ever had.
As soon as I got back home to Toronto, I immediately set to work doing my best to re-create their tuna salad. Although my version isn’t an exact replica, it’s delicious and far healthier with significantly less mayonnaise, in fact, I use only a couple spoonfuls of an eggless and vegan version. Served on the new Super Seedy & Quinoa Harvest Bakes flatbread by Country Harvest, this is a match made in heaven for a simple and healthy sandwich or shareable snack.
A perfect compliment to a protein-rich tuna salad, the new Harvest Bakes are a source of fibre, protein, iron, calcium and they’re a great source of energy to fuel your day – look out for them because they’re now available at major retailers across Canada!

What To Do:
