Tuna veggie salad
I found this from a South Beach Diet thingy--nice for a lunch. Serves about 2. I didn't really follow the directions which said to layer the items!
one 6 oz can of tuna packed in water, drained
1/3 cup chopped cucumber
1/3 cup chopped tomato
1/3 cup chopped avocado
1/3 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped radishes
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil (I used less)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
To make the salad: Layer the tuna, cucumber, tomato, avocado, celery, radishes, and lettuce in a decorative glass bowl.
To make the dressing: Mix the olive oil, lime juice, garlic, and pepper. Drizzle over the salad.
