Preparation Time

15 Min.

Cook Time

14 Min.

Ingredients

tuna salad dressing

2 tbsp white vine vinegar
6 tbsp orange juice (Makes the salad dressing fruity!)
1/2 tsp Salt
5 - 6 pinches black pepper
1 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
chili flakes
2 cans Tuna in oil
1-2 tbsp Olive oil

salad ingredients

300 g romana salad
2 pc Avocados
4 pc eggs (I'll boil the eggs for 12 minutes.)
8 pc tomato
1 pc Cress
4 tbsp fresh pumpkin seeds (I also like to use almonds)
1 pc red onions (I also like to use spring onions or shallots.)
1 tbsp lemon juice

Instruction

Vinegar and orange juice in a bowl with salad dressing ingredients.
Prepare tuna salad dressing.

I use white wine vinegar and orange juice for the salad dressing. The orange juice brings a wonderful freshness into the salad and offers a variety of flavours. Pour both ingredients into a large bowl, add salt, pepper, sugar, mustard and chilli and mix.

Add the oil from the tuna can to the salad dressing and take the omega 3 fatty acids with you.

Open the tuna can and stir the oil into the salad dressing. You can control the taste of the dressing yourself and use only half the oil. You can also add olive oil or walnut oil. Leave the tuna in the tin. Note: The tuna oil contains plenty of dissolved omega-3 fatty acids. Therefore I use the oil gladly for the dressing.

Prepare the salad ingredients, marinate the avocado and tomatoes.

Cut the lettuce hearts open, leave the leaves whole, wash in plenty of cold water and spin dry. Cut the avocados in half with a knife and place the flesh in a bowl with a teaspoon and sprinkle with lemon juice. Cut the tomatoes into small pieces and add to the avocado. Season the tomatoes and avocado with salt, pepper and a little sugar.

Boiled eggs are a popular ingredient in tuna spreads. Decide for yourself whether you want to add eggs.

Cook the eggs for 12 minutes, rinse under cold running water, peel and cut into quarters. Season the eggs with salt and pepper.

Marinate the salad dressings with the dressing and arrange in bowls. Arrange the leaves in a circle and let them look up. Arrange tuna, avocado, cocktail tomatoes in the middle and drizzle with salad dressing. Sprinkle the salad with cress and roasted pumpkin seeds or almonds and serve quickly. You can optionally add onion rings to this salad. Marinate the salad ingredients individually, so you can arrange the salad nice little by little and conjure up a great salad picture …
