South Beach Chopped Salad with Tuna

Another great contribution from the South Beach diet! This is basically a chopped vegetable salad with tuna added--a nice change from the mayo-based tuna salads we usually eat. This is a great summertime lunch option. (I don't usually measure--just chop a bunch of stuff up and toss it with the dressing.)

  • 1 6-oz. can water-packed tuna, drained
  • 1/3 c. chopped cucumber
  • 1/3 c. chopped tomato
  • 1/3 c. chopped avocado
  • 1/3 c. chopped celery
  • 1/3 c. chopped radishes
  • 1 c. chopped romaine lettuce
  • 4 t. olive oil
  • 2 T. lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 t. pepper
Combine salad ingredients (tuna through lettuce). Mix remaining ingredients together and drizzle over salad.

Serves 1 generously
