Tuna and bean salad recipe

This colourful salad is a good way to include fish in your child’s lunchbox. This would work well with a slice of malt loaf and a satsuma.

Prep Time – 10 Mins, Cooking Time –  None, Effort – Super easy

  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Large pinch of dried mixed herbs
  • Large pinch of mustard powder
  • Large pinch of black pepper
  • 1 slice of pepper, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 3cm piece of cucumber, chopped
  • 1 heaped tbsp canned mixed beans in water, drained
  • ½ x 160g can of tuna in spring water, drained
  • To serve: 1 thick slice of wholemeal bread and lower-fat spread
  • Complete your lunchbox with:
  • A satsuma
  • Slice of malt loaf

1

Mix the oil, lemon juice, mixed herbs, mustard powder and black pepper.

2

Add to the salad vegetables, beans and tuna and mix gently.

Double the recipe to use the rest of the can of tuna and save for the next day.

3

Serve with the bread and lower-fat spread.

This would also work well with cold pasta as a pasta salad, instead of serving with bread.
