Ingredients

  • 180 g canned tuna (I prefer tuna in olive oil)
  • 1 celery stick
  • ½ red onion
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 3 sprigs of fresh dill
  • Chilli (optional)

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoon Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoon whole egg mayonaise
  • Sea salt to taste

Garnish

  • Squeeze of fresh lemon

Instructions

  • Chop the celery, onion and walnuts into small cubes
  • Remove dill leaves from the stems and chop up finely
  • In a bowl add the tuna, celery, onion, walnuts, dill and chilli (optional). Mix together until well combined
  • In a separate ramekin, make the dressing by adding the yoghurt, mayonnaise and sea salt. Mix together to create a thick creamy consistency
  • Pour the dressing over the tuna mixture and mix all together
  • Before serving, add a squeeze of lemon. I love to serve in a sandwich using sourdough bread, smashed avocado, lettuce, sliced tomato, followed by the tuna mixture. Yum!!
