Cheesy Chili Tuna with Tomato and Basil Salad

Published: June 20th, 2011 / Last updated: January 1st, 1970

Serves 2 / Calories per serving = 350 approx


  • smoked haddock with sweet potato and green beans1 small can of tuna in brine, drained and lightly flaked
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat natural yogurt 
  • 1 chili pepper (medium heat), chopped finely
  • ½ avocado, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of grated parmesan
  • 2 inch chunk of cucumber, chopped  
  • 10-12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 baby gem lettuce
  • a few fresh basil leaves, chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil)
  • a pinch of fresh ground sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar


  1. Mix the tuna flakes, chili, avocado, parmesan and yogurt gently in a bowl. Mix well but don't break the tuna up too much.
  2. Mix the tomatoes, cucumber, basil and salt in another bowl. Leave to rest for a few minutes - the salt will get the tomato juices flowing.
  3. Seperate the baby gem lettuce leaves, wash and drain and arrange nicely on two plates.
  4. Top the lettuce with the tomato, cucumber and basil mixture and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  5. Spoon the cheesy chili tuna mixture evenly onto both plates and serve with a few Ryvita biscuits.
