Lunch

This can be served with a salad for a gluten free, dairy free lunch. 
Makes 2 Servings
 
Ingredients:
1 can (5 oz) water packed tuna, drained (if you're not worried about the healthy fat content, get the Italian olive oil packed tuna in jars-- the flavour is terrific).
 
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
 
1/2 stalk celery, minced
 
1 finely chopped scallion
 
2 tablespoons lemon juice, or more to taste
 
Extra virgin olive oil to taste

 
Salt and pepper to taste 
 
Directions:
Pour the tuna in a small mixing bowl. Use a fork to break the tuna chunks into very small pieces.
 
Add the basil, celery and lemon juice to the bowl. Use the fork to stir all the ingredients together till well mixed.
 
Add extra virgin olive oil to moisten the tuna to your liking. I usually use between 1 and 2 tablespoons. Season with salt and pepper to taste; sea salt and freshly ground pepper is best. 
 
We spend most of our weekends in the summer at our trailer located in beautiful Sauble Beach where I
grew up. That means we get a lot of company, which we love. I don’t want to spend all weekend
cooking, as I would rather spend that time kayaking and biking and enjoying the beach. I always
make some salads up so we can eat away at them all weekend. This is one of my favourites. It is so
easy to make and is loaded with fibre and antioxidants. It keeps well for a few days in the fridge. -Dee

Dressing:
¼-½ cup of grape seed oil

1 tbsp minced garlic
Drizzle over the salad and let the flavours meld together.
Amount of oil and vinegar will change with the quantities of vegetables you use.
