Tuna Plate

tuna plate

The Tuna Plate is a cold dish, although it is okay if you add something hot to the plate even though I tell you not to at Menu Frameworks. The tuna plate picured here has hash browned potatoes instead of crackers. This plate has no carrots, so I must have been out of them.


  • Tuna fish - around 2 oz. per person
  • Cheddar Cheese - cut into strips or squares
  • Carrots - washed and cut into strips
  • Crackers -any kind or substitute a different carb
  • Apple - washed and sliced or substitute with a different fruit or a fruit salad
  • Dill pickle


Arrange the food items on a plate for each person.
