Italian Tuna Insalata, Beans E Red Onion
Here are some real simple yet gourmet styled picnic foods, presented by 2010 JBF Award Winner for Best New Restaurant, chef Michael White of Marea in New York City, in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz. The title of this dish is White’s tongue-in-cheek reference to the new Mercedes-Benz E-Cabriolet, a four-seat convertible idyllic for summer driving.
