Tuna, sugar snap & avocado salad
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 1
Spruce up your salad with cheap canned tuna, zesty lemon, crunchy pumpkin seeds and creamy avocado - perfect as a light lunch
- STEP 1
Heat a small frying pan and toast the pumpkin seeds until they start to pop. Tip into a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, 1 tsp of the lemon juice, the lemon zest, a pinch of salt and a good grind of black pepper.
- STEP 2
Stone, peel and slice the avocado, then toss in the remaining lemon juice. Thinly slice the sugar snaps at an angle into long strips, then transfer to a bowl. Add the pea shoots and avocado, and gently toss them together.
- STEP 3
Flake over the tuna and drizzle with the dressing. Scatter the pumpkin seeds and chives on top.
If the salad is for a lunchbox or picnic, put the dressing in a separate pot and drizzle over just before you eat it.
