The family is into cooler recipes these days. Here is a lunch I left for my kiddo while I went to take my college students back to school. He is not a huge salad eater, and while tuna salad is quick and easy, it is not as much fun as these. I do love my finger food. It is much more fun in a lunchbox too. Just make sure they can be kept cool. I used dripped homemade yogurt, but cream cheese would work well too. They are about the same consistency. The yogurt adds a nice tartness that works well with the tuna. The layer of ground nuts keeps your fingers clean.

These are tasty, but you could add different spices to change up the flavors. I think I will be trying some different flavor combinations soon. I'm betting they would freeze for easy lunch packing. I think I will try that out soon--not today, because the boy didn't leave any leftovers! These are yummy and a great addition to the Deli Delights section of the e-book.
