Green Salad with a Scoop of Tuna on top
Simple, easy and delicious. Our life is hectic right now with our big move across country and this quick salad with tuna was the perfect lunch.  I don’t really follow a recipe, so what I’ve put below is just something to loosely follow. I didn’t put quantities for the green salad because it just doesn’t have to be precise.

1 large can Tuna, packed in water
1/4 cup Onion, diced fine
1 stalk of Celery, diced fine
1 Tbsp Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Celery Salt

For The Salad:
Romaine Lettuce
Red Onion, sliced thin
Radishes, sliced thin
Cucumber, sliced and quartered
Tomato, diced
Olive Oil
White Wine Vinegar
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Drain the liquid from the tuna and place tuna in a medium bowl.
Add chopped onion, celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice and celery salt to the tuna.
Mix well, cover and refrigerate.
Meanwhile, wash, dry, and cut your Romaine lettuce into bite size pieces.
Prepare the onion, radishes, cucumber and tomato for the salad and toss together in a large bowl.
Sprinkle with olive oil, vinegar, salt and fresh cracked black pepper.
Toss salad together and arrange on plates.
Top each plate with a large mound of the tuna salad.
I like to give an additional squeeze of fresh lemon all over the top of the greens.
Serve right away.

    Thank you for saying tuna fish salad. Every time I add the “fish” after the word “tuna” people laugh at me in Australia. “It’s obviously a fish, isn’t it, Maureen?” well duh, that’s what it’s called where I come from. :)

    Lovely salad and you made me feel all warm and fuzzy and American.

      Hi Maureen! I’ve always called it “tuna fish salad”. I thought if I would have said salad with tuna, most people would think it was fresh tuna seared, or something like that! 😉
