Gloriously Simple Tuna Salad

Here’s one of my regular quick, filling & healthy lunches.

I’ll give you today’s quantities & ingredients, but it really is down to whatever you happen to have available on any given day.  The beauty of that is that you don’t get bored of it if you keep changing some of the ingredients.

Today’s makes enough for 2 generous portions or 1 super-greedy portion (i.e. for me, it’s one portion!).

Assuming 2 portions, it comes in at under 180kcals per portion!

Although it’s not strictly-speaking low-fat, it is low-cal and full of GOOD fat in the form of extra virgin olive oil. Remember to use a really good quality extra virgin olive oil here, as you’re not using a lot of it, so it’s essential to get the best & strongest taste.

For 2 portions, I’ve used: 
  • 40g rocket
  • 80g cucumber, diced
  • 120g (1-2, depending on size) tomatoes, diced
  • 1 large spring onion (the large salad onions…approx 50g chopped)
  • 2tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 can John West No Drain Tuna in a little olive oil (you can use different brands of course, and it doesn’t have to be in olive oil if you prefer it in brine…I just like using this one as it’s a bit tastier and less dry, without having tons of calories)
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
Method

Just throw all the ingredients into a large bowl, mix well and serve!

Gloriously Good, Gloriously Simple!
