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.)

1 tbsp lemon juice


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.

Add Oil

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.


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.

Supplement eggs

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

Season the eggs with salt and pepper.

In addition to canned tuna, you can also choose from tuna in a jar. Here the selection in the overview.

My favourite is the fresh tuna or the tuna in a jar. 

Among other things I have discovered a white tuna in the glass, you can take the tuna fillets and the fish tastes delicious.

When shopping for tuna, pay attention to a product from sustainable fishing.

There are various seals that can be found on the products.
