Garden tuna salad

  • Preparation Time15 mins
  • Serves2
  • DifficultyEasy
1/4 red onion, chopped
0.5 tsp freshly grated lemon zest
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 medium radishes, thinly sliced
1 rib celery, chopped
1/2 cucumber with skin, chopped
1 medium ripe tomato, diced
25g chopped fresh herbs, such as fresh flat-leaf parsley, dill and/or basil
300g mesclun salad greens
1 (175g) jar water-packed tuna, drained
1) Mellow the harsh taste of the raw onion by soaking it in cold water for about 10 minutes.

2) Whilst onion is soaking, put the lemon zest, juice, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Gradually whisk in the olive oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream to make a smooth, slightly thick vinaigrette.

3) Add the radishes, celery, cucumber, tomato, herbs and greens to the bowl. Drain the onion and add to the salad. Add the tuna and toss again, keeping the tuna in nice even pieces. Divide between two plates and serve.
