When the heating disappears from your flat and you are sitting in 15 degrees, which is way below room temperature, well… you sleep in five layers and drink soup. Which is kind of what I did yesterday.
But when the heating is back but it is still freezing, but you just don’t want to cook anything – well that’s when you make this delicious salad.
Now the original version of this belongs to my mother of course, and nothing beats her’s: she puts rice into the mix, which gives a whole new delicious layer to the dinner. But if you’re lazy like me, this is what I have used:
The dressing is fuss-free too: I used mustard, olive oil, a pinch of thyme, a pinch of cayenne, salt and pepper, all whisked together nicely.
You have to understand, I hate salad. And when I say salad, I mean those bags filled with salad leaves with different colours, trying to look exciting – but they don’t fool me. This is pretty much why I simply cannot do a diet… Amongst other reasons…
Anyways, I challenge you to send me a dressing recipe that can make salad interesting! Help me cut back on butter and double cream!
Until then, try this tuna salad. Promised to make you feel like you’re being healthy – and honestly, I missed the crunchiness of fresh vegetables so much…
