Ingredients

  • 100g quinoa
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • juice 1 lemon
  • ½ tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 120g can tuna, drained
  • 1 avocado, stoned, peeled and cut into chunks

    Rinse the quinoa under cold water. Tip into a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 mins until the grains have swollen but still have some bite. Drain, then transfer to a bowl to cool slightly.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, in a jug, combine the oil, lemon juice and vinegar with some seasoning.

  • STEP 3

    Once the quinoa has cooled, mix with the dressing and all the remaining ingredients and season. Divide between plates or lunchboxes.
