Salad a la Mama Mia

Trust my mother to come up with the craziest food combinations that turn out perfectly every time. Tonight, a quick dinner consisted of what she dubbed a "Unique, Warm, Mediterranean Nicoise-Inspired Salad." She started with sauteeing onions, eggplant, and zucchini. These warm veggies were added to hot boiled potatoes, fresh juicy red tomatoes, canned tuna in olive oil, parsley, basil, capers, and lots of lemon juice. Tossed all together, the warm and cool components melded into a room temperature concoction. The flavors of the lemon, capers, olive oil, and tuna work in their perfect combination to create a salad that was, in her words, "truly exquisite" and completely unique.
