embellish your life and your tuna salad

Tuna Salad

I always have a couple of cans of tuna lying around, and I end up using them when the fridge looks bare and I don’t have time to food shop.  I like to embellish everything in my life so why not my tuna salad? Add more than just mayo – try mixing in some peppers, onions, olives and thyme.

Here’s the recipe, it takes only 10 minutes. Enjoy.

Serves two
1 12oz. tuna can in water (dolphin safe!)
1/3 cup chopped black olives
1 large red pepper
1/3 small red onion, chopped finely
Salt, pepper, thyme and parsley to taste.
3-4 heaping tablespoons of hellman’s mayo, don’t use the low-fat, it tastes like garbage.
Iceberg lettuce (or your preference)
Mix all of the above in a bowl and place on a bed of lettuce. Save some olive or pepper to adorn your dish.
