MarketBasket | Tuna salad, sushi style

Posted: July 19, 2007

These sushi-style tea sandwiches might have shocked the Victorians, but they're a pick-me-up on a hot July afternoon on the Main Line. We found them at Philadelphia Lobster & Fish Co., where the sushi chef spikes sushi-grade ground tuna with chile-mayo, then stuffs it between rice triangles for a tuna sandwich that bites back.

Not-too-sweet tea

Finally, an iced tea for those of us who prefer the taste of tea to the taste of sugar. Snapple has busted out three new flavors of crisp black teas - Earl Grey, English Breakfast and Orange Pekoe - each with just a smidge of sugar, only 8 grams per 8-ounce serving.

Cheese, please

There's no mistaking what this porcelain container is designed to hold - pre- or post-grating - for serving or storing. The surprise is the stainless steel grater inside.
