Tuna Salad

Although my favorite ingredient is protein, consistent amounts of raw vegetables and fresh ingredients are equally important. So this week I have put out my version of a healthy hearty tuna salad. With a few commonly available ingredients, and in under 15 minutes.

Ingredients:

Tuna flakes in oil – 50 gm

Onion – ¼ no.

Lettuce – 50 gm

Cherry tomato – 5 no

Black olives – 5 no.

Capers – 10 no

Olive oil – 2 tbsp

Oregano – ¼ tsp

Salt & black pepper – to taste

Method:

1)      Begin by firstly collecting all your ingredients, or mise en place.

2)      Cut your lettuce into bite size pieces. Wash in cold water & strain till all the water gets out.

3)      In a bowl, combine the lettuce, olives, cherry tomatoes, capers & oregano.  Add in the tuna, balsamic vinegar, olive oil  & seasoning, & give it a good mix.

4)      Slice your onion into thin roundels. Go as thin as you can. This will add a bit of texture to your dish.

5)      Finally plate the salad followed by the onion rings on top. Cool & serve!
