Tuna, Tomato & Avocado Salad

Tuna, Tomato & Avocado Salad

Prep time: 5 minutes

Serves 2
(for lunch or more as part of a buffet)

1 avocado, cut in chunks
1 tin (5.6oz /170g good quality white solid tuna, chunked (I prefer the kind that comes in vegetable broth & oil) I actually used tuna salad that I had left in the fridge. It had finely chopped red onions and some red peppers),
1 ripe tomato (I like mine vine ripened), coarsely chopped
¼ cup ( ½ small) red onion, thinly sliced and then chopped
1-2 tbsp fresh basil, shredded or chiffonade (leaves rolled and sliced across)
1-2 tbsp mayo (I love Hellman’s new olive oil mayo)
½ - 1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp apple cider balsamic vinegar (or more if you like things tangy)
Salt & pepper to taste

1. Place the tomatoes, tuna, avocado and chopped basil in a serving bowl.

2. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the dressing. Taste for seasoning and then add to the tuna, tomato & avocado mixture. Toss, taste again and serve.
