So I took my Two Nut Salad recipe, shaped it like an actual tuna, surrounded it with slices of a savory wheat/rye with mixed seeds bread, and headed for Judy and Joel's lovely Brentwood home.

Here's the recipe:
Two Nut Phish Salad
2 cups garbanzo beans, canned or Melissa's steamed
1/2 cup hazelnuts, ground
1/2 cup almonds, ground
1/3 cup carrots, diced
1/3 cup celery, diced
1/3 cup sweet onion, diced
1/3 cup pickle relish
1/2 cup Vegenaise (mayo)
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 Tablespoons dehydrated sea vegetables or crushed nori (optional)
Pulse the garbanzo beans in a processor until slightly mashed and flakey - do not take them into hummous territory!
In a large bowl, combine the g-beans with the remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Season with s&p, add more of any ingredient you like, or for that matter you can leave something out and put something else you like in. More Vegenaise probably wouldn't hurt either. (The optional "sea" ingredient is for those who like their salad extra phishy.)
Form the salad into a fish shape, embellish with cucumber and scallion fins/tails, pluck in a hazelnut eyeball, surround with your favorite bread, crackers, and/or chips, and enjoy. Maybe try and save some for a two nut phish salad sandwich for lunch tomorrow?
