Lemony Tuna & Asparagus salad box

Lemony Tuna & Asparagus salad box

This lunchtime idea looks fantastic..! A new take on the classic salad Niçoise. This lean salad is bulked out by storecupboard cannellini beans and flavoured with dill and lemon.


2 large eggs
200g asparagus (woody ends snapped off, spears halved)
160g can tuna
in spring water (no need to drain)
1 small red onion, very finely chopped
125g cannellini bean
from a can, drained
zest and juice ½ lemon
1 tbsp fresh chopped dill
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Put a pan of water on to boil with a steamer above. When boiling, lower the eggs into the water and steam the asparagus above for 8 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, gently toss all the other ingredients together and arrange on plates or in rigid containers. Plunge the eggs into cold water to cool them a little, then peel and quarter. Add the eggs and asparagus to the tuna salad. Will keep in the fridge for 2 days.
