Tuna & Tomato Salad

 

A simple and quick summer dinner – for those nights when you want something tasty that won’t heat up the whole house. Makes enough for two.

 

Tuna & Tomato Salad

 

1 can tuna, drained

2 tbsp olive oil mayo

1 carrot, grated

1 stalk celery, grated

2 green onions, minced

S&P to taste

3 ripe tomatoes, I used three colors

4 basil leaves, cut into ribbons

Extra Virgin olive oil

S&P to taste

 

Mix all the first 6 ingredients together and set aside. Slice the tomatoes so that you get 4 good sized slices from each one. Arrange 6 slices around the outside of each plate (two plates). Take half of the tuna mixture, shape into a ball, and place in the middle of the tomato slices. Drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil, sprinkle with basil leaves and top with salt and pepper.
