Tuna salad is a perfect recipe for a quick, low fuss lunch. I keep extra hard-boiled eggs on hand in the fridge, this makes it even faster to prepare. Adding sauerkraut to this salad will also help with good gut health.

425g can tuna (wild caught), drained
1 lge lebanese cucumber(s), diced
1 carrot(s), grated
2 – 3 cups green cabbage, finely shredded (you can also add red cabbage)

1/2 cup sauerkraut, optional
1/4 cup mayonnaise, (homemade egg mayonnaise preferred)

1 lge avocado(s), diced
1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt, and ground black pepper to taste
3 – 4 lge iceberg lettuce, leaves to serve


To a large bowl add, tuna, cucumber, carrot, cabbage, celery, sauerkraut and mayonnaise.

Mix to combine well, distributing the ingredients evenly throughout.

Gently stir through, chopped eggs, avocado and seasoning.

To serve, place a lettuce leave on each plate and divide tuna salad evenly into the leaves.

You may like to decorate with extra egg wedges and sprouts.
