I hope everyone’s had a good start to the week!
It’s nearly Super Bowl which means SNACK. If you want to find me, you know I’ll be around the snack table 😉
These are a super easy and healthy snack to put together – you can make the tuna in advance and just serve it in chicory cups (butter lettuce would also be delicious) before serving!
Tuna Salad in Chicory Cups dairy free, gluten free
This is a perfect light recipe for a light lunch or snack – the tahini gives it a delicious creaminess whilst the lemon juice and zest lifts the whole dish! Perfect with celery and red peppers too!
1 can tuna in olive oil
Handful of plum tomatoes
1/4 cucumber, finely chopped
2 spring onions, finely chopped
Chicory, to serve
optional: peppers, courgette, coriander or parsley
Mix the tuna salad ingredients with the tahini dressing.
Serve immediately in chicory cups.
For the dressing
1 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste
Extra virgin olive oil (optional)
Stir the tahini with the water and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.
It may separate at first but keep whisking and it will become smooth!
