Chopped Salad with Tuna


This salad makes a very filling lunch.  There are plenty of flavors for your taste buds to savor and you will be nice and full when you finish with this salad.  Note:  The recipe says it serves 1, but I split it up and get 2 servings.  Enjoy yourself!

Salad Ingredients – Serves 1

  • 1 can (6 ounces) water-packed tuna
  • 1/3 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/3 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/3 cup chopped avocado
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 chopped radishes
  • 1 cup chopped romaine lettuce

Salad Directions

  1. Layer the tuna, cucumber, tomato, avocado, celery, radishes, and lettuce in a decorative glass bowl.   (You don’t have to do it in a glass bowl; it’s more for presentation purposes)

Dressing Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (I use the bottled lime juice)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (I use a garlic press)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Dressing Directions

  1. Mix the olive oil, lime juice, garlic, and pepper.
  2. Drizzle over the salad.
