This is a delicious combination of our lightly-salted, air-cured tuna mixed with fresh crispy tart, or sweet, apples and fresh chives. The contrast of sweet/tart fruit with the salty, umami taste of mojama makes a flavorful topping or sandwich filling. It is great served as a starter or with fresh greens such as wild arugula or baby spinach.
