                         drained & slightly mashed
      1/2  cup           Canned garbanzo beans -- drained
    1                    2-in piece of cucumber -- preferably English

    3      tablespoons   Dried currants
    2      tablespoons   Slivered almonds -- lightly toasted
    2                    Scallions -- thinly sliced
    4      tablespoons   Plain low-fat yogurt
    1      teaspoon      Curry powder
      1/2  teaspoon      Ground ginger
 
 CUT OFF THE TOP of the red pepper about one-third of the way down. Remove the
seeds and membranes from both the top and bottom, and the stem from the top.
Finely dice the top and put it in a medium-size bowl. Add the tuna, garbanzo
beans, cucumber, currants, almonds and scallions to the bowl, and toss gently.
Combine the yogurt with the curry and ginger, and mix it with the tuna salad.
Spoon the tuna back into the red pepper before serving.
