Tuna Feta Salad

Ohhh…. ze weather. Hot and hazy and humid. Some days, all I want is a watermelon smoothie and then go for a swim.

Other days, salads are the only thing that will do. No heavy rice dish or stews. Just a simple salad and my insides are grateful.

I did a 2-day juice cleanse not too long ago and wanted to keep my diet fresher and cleaner for a bit longer so I had salads for about a week afterwards. To say that I felt better is an understatement. I’m not the healthiest or cleanest eater around… we all know that. But it always helps to take a little care where possible.

While chopped salads are all fine and dandy, I prefer simpler and easier to prepare salads that require minimal knife action and time.  There are all types of salad leaf varieties out there that are soft and pretty, not to mention nutritious too. Just a bit of tearing apart and mixing is all that’s needed to get them ready for consumption. No recipe needed whatsoever.

As such, I went for frillice lettuce this time, to make it easier for this sleepyhead to prepare my lunch in the morning.

 I used some Tuna in Olive Oil, Japanese Cucumber, Tomato Slices, Black Olives, Marinated Feta, Sunflower Seeds, Balsamic Vinegar, Salt & Pepper.

It’s all a matter of layering, arranging, mixing…

Not too difficult for a un-morning-person  (probably not a word).

I like how simple yet robust this salad is. Every texture possible, every flavour imaginable. Sort of.

Without the calorific creamy mayo dressing, this tuna salad gets its share of creaminess (and dreaminess!) from those feta cubes. Altogether salty, herby, creamy and tangy.

Lunch necessitates a lunchbox so I tossed everything into a container with extra extra crunchy sunflower seeds/pepita.

Thumbs up to summer salads!
