Recipe: Tuna, Tomato, Cucumber Salad

Summary: Garden fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, along with canned tuna in olive oil, make this an easy late-summer supper salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (or more, to your liking)
  • Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Tonno in Olive Oil2 Persian cucumbers (or 1 large cucumber)
  • 1 (5-ounce) can Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Solid Light Tuna – Tonno in Olive Oil (or your favorite oil-packed tuna)
  • 1 Meyer lemon
  • A grind or two of black peppercorns
  • Baby arugula or your favorite salad greens

Instructions

  1. Tuna, Tomato, Cucumber Salad on Shockingly DeliciousWash, dry and remove stems from tomatoes. Cut in half and add tomatoes to a mixing bowl. Wash, dry, peel (if you like) and seed cucumbers. Chop and add to the tomatoes.
  2. Add tuna and its oil to the mixing bowl, squeeze a bit of lemon juice over all, a grind or two of black pepper, and mix gently so the tuna remains in large-ish chunks. You don’t want it mashed as it would be for a tuna salad sandwich. Taste for seasoning, add more lemon juice, even a splash more olive oil if you feel you need it, and a pinch of salt if the tuna isn’t salty enough for you. Your choice, to your taste.
  3. Place arugula or other salad greens in wide, flat bowls, top with tuna-tomato-cuke mixture and serve.
  4. Serves 2. May easily be doubled.
