Ingredients

Method

  • 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.

RECIPE TIPS
PACKED LUNCH

If the salad is for a lunchbox or picnic, put the dressing in a separate pot and drizzle over just before you eat it.
