Using up canned goods! Seeking ideas!

Miri1 | Dec 12, 201411:44 PM     9

I think its safe to say that most of us here take pride in our cooking and doing things from scratch. Having said that, sometimes we have to turn to canned goods, and I certainly do so with not one iota of shame or false pride. I was raised on canned vegetables and my dad ate them almost every day at dinner.

So here's the question: I have accumulated a lot of canned goods over the last year. I need to start using them because i'm not sure how long I will be in my present location. Itsan ecectic mix rangingfrom the ubiquitous tuna and salmon to water chestnuts, baby corn and, of course, fruit. So please share your favorite recipes using canned foods. Cold dishes that require no cooking are especially useful to me, but I'd like to hear any and all ideas! Thanks!
