I love salads and most people do. Although this cannot be simpler I am asked a lot why I add certain ingredients. First of all flavour and texture is important as is healthy and filling.

Avocado Tuna Feta Salad

When I use tuna chunks I expect chunks as it makes a big different to the taste. I like authentic feta, the real Greek one and seeds and nuts not only make the salad tastier and add a bit of crunch but they are high in protein and fibre and turn a simple salad into a complete meal and a most attractive dish.

Today's quick salad: Tuna Avocado Feta is gluten free and diabetic friendly

For 2 servings you will need:

50g mixed salad leaves
200g tuna [drain the oil or brine]
75g feta cheese
1 avocado
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds [dry roasted]
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper

My star ingredient - Sunflower Seeds - rich in nutrients, minerals, antioxidants, vitamins.

1 tablespoon sunflower seeds = 50 calories
High in Vitamins E and B Complex
Rich source of Folic Acid
Good source of Protein

Arrange the salad leaves on a dish of your choice and top with tuna chunks and sliced avocado. Crumble up the feta cheese and add it to the salad.

Sprinkle the sunflower seeds on the top and add the lemon juice and olive oil. Finish off with a touch of salt and lots of fresh ground black pepper.
