If you live in the UK then you will know that the weather has been SO HOT.. If you live else where in the world then ‘hot weather’ in the summer may be normal for you.. but it is such a novelty for us!!
Hot weather (for me anyway!) means salad time, and over the next few weeks I’ll be blogging my favourite. I’ve already shared with you my Salmon & Quinoa Salad Recipe as well as other Salad Recipes, but today I wanted to show how to create a delicious and healthy salad with tuna and sweet potato (salad nicoise with a twist!).
I always order a Tuna Nicoise if I’m eating at a restaurant and fancy a salad but have never actually tried creating my own at home (until now!). I’ve made the traditional Salad Nicoise slightly healthier by swapping regular potatoes for sweet potato which count as 1 of your ‘5 a day’ and release their energy slowly and have included a delicious, heart healthy dressing too.
The protein in this recipe (tuna, egg & anchovies) will help to keep you feeling fuller for longer which means that this recipe is perfect for either lunch or dinner!
Do let me know if you make it!
Nutritional stats include the dressing! Use balsamic vinegar for a lighter alternative 🙂
This salad recipe serves 2 so if you’re cooking for 1 then why not save the left-overs for lunch the next day.. simply wrap the plate with cling film or transfer to a plastic Tupperware box and store in the fridge!
UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who sends me pictures of my recipes on Twitter & Facebook – here are a selection!!
Does that mean you typically have cold weather in the UK? YOU GUYS ARE SO BLESSED!
Haha yes but the rain is NOT a blessing!! lol x
I love this salad as it’s a taste of summer & healthy….what a bonus
Aw thank you Arti!
