Tuna and Tomato Salad Recipe

2016-05-10 13.31.10

This is a very quick recipe and doesn’t require you to make a dressing as the olive oil coats and combines the tuna mixture. I am really enjoying our health kick at the moment and Paulie has lost 1/2 stone already just by cutting right down on carbs, fat and sugar intake! The tomatoes are really sweet at the moment and I have noticed that the supermarket are getting more and more from the UK which are always my 1st choice, yay!

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 small tin of pole line tuna (in spring water is our favourite)
  • 8 vine cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 8 cornichons or gherkins, chopped
  • 2 tbsp preserved lemons, chopped (recipe here)
  • good grind of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon olive oil
  • 1 tsp of store cupboard lemon juice or a squeeze of fresh
  • 1 small bag of salad (we used watercress, rocket and spinach)


  1. In a bowl combine all the ingredients except the salad leaves and put in fridge for at least 10 minutes so the flavours combine.
  2. Divide salad leaves between 2 bowls and spoon over the tuna mixture.
  3. Serve and enjoy.
