Fresh Chickpea, Tuna, Red Onion, Red Wine Vinegar salad
Want to try something healthy for lunch? I rustled up this quick and super easy recipe yesterday when I had my mum and sister round for an impromptu lunch date.
I have about 5 cans of tuna in my cupboards at home, just incase you know I have to ration one day, their’s an earthquake or something or I just fancy something simple and easy to make.
There’s no cooking involved really apart from grilling some halloumi to put on top if you fancy( I have an addiction to this at the moment, have you noticed?)
1 Can of Tuna, drained
1 Can of Chickpeas, drained
1/2 a large Red Onion, thinly diced
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1-2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar ( to taste)
A handful of sliced green and black olives (you can buy pre sliced, or pipped and then slice)
Black pepper to taste
Salad Cress, optional
Halloumi slices, optional
Drain your chickpeas and tuna, empty them into a bowl together, give a good mix
Dice your red onion, slice your olives and add to the mixture, drizzle in the olive oil and red wine vinegar
Taste, add more if required, then season with black pepper
You can slice your halloumi and grill till golden brown and mix into the salad. Sprinkle over cress and serve!
A quick tasty lunch, using ingredients lurking in your store cupboard, turned into something delicious!
