Q: Is this one of those recipes that involves a lot of trial and error? How long did it take you to create it and what was the process like?

small-quote
We’ve been making a partially cooked version of mock-tuna at the health retreat for years now, and it’s delicious, but I wanted to make an equally tasty raw version as well. So after a few attempts with different nuts as bases, which were good, but a little on the heavy side, I discovered that soaked sunflower seeds are a fantastic medium for mock-tuna

Q: Was it hard to create the look of tuna?

small-quote
Not at all, the softened sunflower seeds really take on the look of shredded tuna when you pulse them in the food processer with the other ingredients.

Q: Although there are many ingredients, it looks like this salad can be made fairly quickly. Is that right?

small-quote
Absolutely! This recipe is super quick and easy. The one thing I would recommend is soaking your sunflower seeds 1-2 hours ahead of time to allow them to soften.

Q: This recipe looks delicious. Can you describe what the dill, oregano and capers do for the flavor?

small-quote
There is no substitution for the amazing flavors that fresh herbs can bring to a dish. In this recipe, the oregano and dill compliment the bright, sweet flavors of the tomatoes beautifully. The capers add a briny, saltiness, while the red wine vinegar gives a punch of acid, and then the olive oil just brings everything together with its subtle richness. This is also a very easy dish to prepare for a large dinner party, that will really wow your guests.

Q: You specify a high-speed blender for this smoothie. What difference does speed make?

small-quote
I recommend having a high-speed blender in every kitchen, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec. The power, versatility, and durability of these higher end brands, really make them worth the extra cost. However, if you already have a standard blender, it will definitely work for this recipe.
