I used the ingredients (mostly) but couldn't face another meal fail (after day 1 of summer diet plan) so had to change it up a bit. Hubby wasn't going to faff with lettuce wraps, I don't like avocado, using lime juice and zest of a whole lime usually end s up too limey for us and mixing up everything with only 1.5 tbsp. of yoghurt was going to end up dry in texture and bland, so with some brain trickery we got there. In one bowl I mixed the peas, tuna, yog and 1 tsp of curry powder (brain fake: coronation tuna), in another bowl I mixed the slimy, tasteless avocado with lime juice, coriander and added 3 chopped spring onions (brain fake: guacamole), laid the baby gem lettuce leaves at the bottom of the bowl, spooned the 'guacamole' on top, sprinkled the chopped peppers next to break up the green, and added the 'coronation tuna' on top. Didn't use the rice. It looked yummy and tasted yummy :)

Really light and fresh taste. Ate it without putting it in the lettuce, as the omelette breakfast had filled us up.

loved this. i just chopped the the gem lettuce up and mixed it in to eat as a salad instead of fiddling to wrap it all up

Really tasty and zesty - although I'm on day 2 of the Summer diet plan and have to admit, I'm starting to miss salt! Also, the name of the dish mentions sweetcorn, but there's none in the recipe. I added some anyway as I'd already opened the tin by the time I noticed.

Was delicious but the recipe name says sweet corn and it's not included in the ingredient list?
