What makes the best ever tuna sandwich? It’s all in the combination of ingredients—the best tuna you can find, cottage cheese and mayo, and good use of fresh dill, parsley, and more.

My parents started making tuna salad sandwiches this way years ago and, as far as I’m concerned, theirs is the best and only way to make a tuna fish sandwich.

In addition to tuna, it has red onions, celery, capers, lemon juice, parsley, mayo, and the kicker? Cottage cheese. You might think that cottage cheese is a weird thing to add to tuna salad, but believe me, it really works!

Best Canned Tuna for Tuna Salad

To make the best tuna salad sandwich, it helps to start with high quality canned tuna. We prefer tuna that is packed in extra virgin olive oil, because the oil intensifies the flavor of the tuna.

Both Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have excellent canned tuna packed in olive oil that work perfectly for this tuna salad. The brands we most often use are Wild Planet Albacore Solid Wild Tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Genova Yellowfin Tuna in Olive Oil.

If you don’t like the oil that the tuna is packed in, you can always drain it, and add back a tablespoon or so of your own high quality extra virgin olive oil.

If all you have is tuna packed in water, drain it, and add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil to it. Finding the best canned tuna for your taste may require a bit of experimentation with brands.

Doubling This Recipe

This recipe makes enough tuna salad for 1 large sandwich or 2 smaller sandwiches. You can easily double the recipe. Any leftover tuna salad will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

The first bottles of Marlborough Sauvignon from American actress Sarah Jessica Parker’s new wine range – Invivo X – will go on sale in the US this September.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s new wine brand is called ‘Invivo X’

As reported by Wine Spectator, Parker’s 2019 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc will go on sale in 18 US states and eight countries on 18 September.

The pared down white label features a hand-drawn teal blue ‘X’ in the centre inspired by a kiss sign off in a letter. Parker designed the label and used the same trendy teal as one of her favourite pairs of shoes in her SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker shoe collection.

db first reported the news of SJP’s wine range back in February. The wines are being made in collaboration with dynamic New Zealand brand Invivo, founded by Rob Cameron and Tim Lightbourne.

Parker chose the blend of her NZ Sauvignon with Rob Cameron and Tim Lightbourne of Invivo

Rather than simply putting her name on the label, Parker is involved in all aspects of the creation of the wines, from the label design to choosing the final blend. She is also a shareholder in the company.

She recently met with Lightbourne and Cameron in New York to select the final blend for her 2019 Marlborough Sauvignon.

“I’ve never done anything where I’ve just put my name on it and walked away. It’s just not the way I’ve conducted my business,” Parker told Wine Spectator.

“If I’m not going to drink it and believe in it, if I’m not going to wear my own shoes, then who am I to ask anyone to drink it or wear my shoes?” she added.

The second release from her Invivo X brand will be a rosé from Southern France, which is due to hit shelves in the US next spring.

“The rosé category is also on fire, so we wanted to do a rosé, which will likely from Provence as SJP loves Provence rosé and that’s what’s popular. We’re talking to a few Provence producers at the moment,” Cameron told dbin March.

Parker developed a passion for wine during travels through Italy, France and Greece while filming on location.

“I have always thought of myself as a Chardonnay drinker, and I think I used to feel like that slightly exposed myself as not a very complex a person. But I’ve had some incredible, really beautiful Chardonnays,” she told Wine Spectator.

Might this mean her third release could be a California Chardonnay? We’ll have to wait and see…

Blanc Graphique (949)

Chanel Blanc Graphique (949) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a pale beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It almost looked like a creamy, grayish beige to me at times, but the yellowness in the pencil itself made it seem warmer overall. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy without being too emollient, so while it glided on comfortably (even on the water line), it didn’t seem to slide around easily. It had opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which went on evenly. The color stayed on nicely for nine hours on my lower lash line.

In a review of infant deaths that occurred while children were sleeping in sitting devices, researchers determined than more than 60% of the deaths were in car seats. The car seats were used as directed in less than 10% of those cases.

“While car seats are important when you’re traveling with an infant, it’s best not to have the infant sleep in the car seat when you’re at home,” says researcher Rachel Moon, MD, a pediatrician at the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital, in a release. “The safest place for a baby to sleep is on a firm, flat surface.”

Sleep-Related Infant Deaths in Sitting Devices

Moon and colleagues set out to shed light on a poorly documented category of infant deaths: deaths while sleeping in sitting devices, such as car seats and strollers. The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages allowing children to routinely sleep in such devices.

Of almost 12,000 infant sleep-related deaths reported between 2004 and 2014, approximately 3%—348 deaths—occurred in sitting devices, the researchers found. Car seats were the site of 62.9% of these deaths, but in the “great majority” of cases, the infant was not traveling in a car, the researchers report. Out of the total deaths in a sitting device, only .2% occurred in a vehicle that was in motion or temporarily parked. More than half of car seat deaths occurred at the child’s home.

While the researchers did not establish why the infants were in car seats when not traveling, they note that some parents may not be able to afford a crib or bassinet, or people may use the seats to hold the child while doing other tasks.

After car seats, the most common site for sleep-related infant deaths while sitting were bouncers, swings, and similar devices (122 deaths, 35.1%). Strollers were the site of 2% of deaths (seven of the 348).

Overall, nearly two-thirds of the deaths in sitting devices occurred while the devices were not being used for their intended purpose and in compliance with their instructions, the researchers report.

The researchers emphasize that their findings in no way call into question the safety of car seats when used as directed. Car seats are a “safe and effective way of transporting an infant and should always be used when transporting an infant in a motor vehicle, whether the infant is awake or asleep,” the researchers write.

The researchers have published their findings in the scientific journal Pediatrics. The study’s authors were Peter Liaw of UVA, Moon, Autumn Han of Missouri’s Capital Region Medical Center and Jeffrey Colvin of Missouri’s Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics.

Funding for the Child Death Review Case Reporting System used in the study is provided by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, grant UG7MC28482.

A cold winter and dry summer characterised the 2019 harvest across the board in Argentina offering balanced and concentrated wines. With the total crush standing at 2.4 billion kilograms of grapes (compared to 2.5 in 2018), production was slightly lower in 2019, with only 73% of Argentina’s wineries actually producing wine this year.

Mendoza, home to 70% of Argentina’s production, experienced a cold winter with a cool spring, although the summer brought a quick escalation in temperatures with peaks of over 40°C during January and February. Fortunately, a cooler March and April slowed down ripening times and brought harvest times in line with the average, albeit with a slightly lower yield.

‘We expected the harvest to be larger than usual, but the combination of dry weather and cool climate resulted in yields slightly lower than the norm,’ explains head winemaker at Catena Zapata, Alejandro Vigil. ‘The cooler climate made for highly concentrated wines with great colour and acidity.’

Juanfa Suarez, who has 60 hectares in Altamira in the Uco Valley agrees that this was a notable vintage: ‘2019 is a great year – the wines are showing a lot of character and freshness,’ he told Decanter.com.

‘It was a fresh and dry year, ideal for wines with lower alcohol and higher acidity.’

In San Rafael, white wines are particularly promising: ‘White wines this year have a much higher level of malic acid and lower sugar content,’ said winemaker Leo Borsi. ‘We’ll see more austere white wines which can age well.’

Further south, Rio Negro experienced a similar weather pattern: ‘Overall, the summer was fresh with some brief peaks in temperature, the conditions were good,’ said Noemia winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers.

‘The reds have a great colour intensity and are fruity and fresh with very silky tannins and the wines are very well balanced. It has been an exceptional year.’

In the north, the vintage was considered normal with a good quality and even pacing of the harvest.

‘It was a really good year and very dry year as per normal,’ Piattelli winemaker Valeria Antolin told Decanter.com. ‘We were able to harvest our grapes in a much more condensed time, which enabled us to harvest at the right time for the variety.’

Modern Glamour (334)

Chanel Modern Glamour (334) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of smokier shades ranging from white to pewter to cool, matte black. All four shades were blendable and easy to use, though the first shade (the pewter hue) could have been more pigmented in one layer.

Modern Glamour #1

Modern Glamour #1 is a medium, greenish-pewter with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had medium pigmentation that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage when applied dry, while a wet brush amplified the intensity to more semi-opaque to opaque in one layer. The consistency was silky and finely-milled, which helped the product adhere well and blend out with ease. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Modern Glamour #2

Modern Glamour #2 is a bright white with a shimmery, almost metallic finish and more neutral undertones. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to my skin. The eyeshadow had a soft, velvety texture to it that didn’t have any fallout during application but blended out well. I noticed subtle signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Modern Glamour #3

Modern Glamour #3 is a rich, cooler-toned black with a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that was dense, more substantial, but it wasn’t too firmly pressed in the pan. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin, blended out effortlessly, and lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Modern Glamour #4

Modern Glamour #4 is a medium-dark gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and cooler, silvery shimmer throughout. It appeared as a metallic silver in the pan, but it swatched and applied much darker as the base pigment came through. The coverage was nearly opaque in a single pass, and it was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and blendable without being powdery or too firmly pressed in the pan. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
