Tuna Green Salad

As soon as we shifted to our new residence, I had taken a resolution that at least once a week, our dinner would be only soup and salad, and the auspicious day I chose for the same was Tuesday. Unfortunately, as with all my resolutions, this remained unfulfilled till recently. That too, I would pray that on Tuesdays, I would not have B for dinner as he would frown at the sight of salads and soups and always expects a full course meal. In that case, HD is quite supportive – he in fact loves soups and salads but the only problems is he wants it a starter and would be more than happy to have a meal that follows it. Seriously, I chose soup and salad as dinner to avoid cooking elaborate meals, then what is the point if he expects so?


Having said that, there are not many salad variants I have tried, but whatever I try and comes out well, I will make it a point to share here. Tuna is not something I cook often at home since HD and B both can’t stand it. If you go through the blog, the only tuna recipe I have here are these sandwiches and these wraps I had made for myself and the girls. When B was off for his duty, I made a large bowl of this salad and served it with some tomato soup and H thought it was a really hearty meal! I guess that was because he didn’t miss the non-veg this time! 😉



Updated with new pictures on July 22, 2020: As I read through this post, I realize that I haven’t stuck to my promise throughout the almost six years of staying in this current place. Hehe… We have very erratic eating habits. Most of the days, I just cook out of what is there in the pantry, especially when it gets really hot like it is now. I decided to update the pictures of this post when I had the opportunity of doing a summer salad with a bunch of Instagrammers. After all, during the hot nights, all you want is a meal that you can just dump together and get done within no time, and this salad perfectly fits into it. 😉
While doing the update, I realized that I hadn’t added corn into my salad. I had it in my pantry but I simply couldn’t remember that I had it. I missed such a delicious addition. However, no problem. Please add them if you have it. I am not doing any changes to the recipe, since it remained the same. Just go up or down on the vegetables. Add some extra vegetables of your choice – I feel adding some chopped capsicum would increase the crunch quotient. All in all, it is a super easy salad which gives you enough protien through the tuna used and the fibre from the salad vegetables.


As usual, I keep the old picture. I am just ashamed that I took a click without even keeping anything on the backdrop on my counter space. I still do take clicks on my counter space, but not without doing at least some background arrangements. 😉

  8. Resolutions to have salad now thats something I too should keep because its easy to do.
    I love ur idea of cooking tuna I have seen people adding straight out of the can. I somehow dislike so much rawness of fish.

    1. I never like tuna just like that… At least that little sautéing in the fry pan makes me feel at ease! Thank you so much Meena…
