Tuna, Cucumber, Fennel and Celery Salad with an Avocado Dressing (serves 4)
Dreamt this up last night – it’s a green salad for sure. Omit tuna and it’s vegetarian/vegan. Dressing has a tang some few drops of Green (jalapeno) tabasco (depends on number because I used a mild version – think there are 2 strengths). Always love trying new dressings as they really ring the changes to the taste of salad ingredients.
So, drain tuna, using best canned or jarred type. Chop veg. Spoon over dressing et voila! Can use chicken too.
Take one ripe avocado and roughly dice.
Place in food processor with juice of a lemon and 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil. Add a several drops of green tabasco sauce, taste and add more if needed, according to your taste. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
If dressing seems too thick add some water – a little at a time to desired consistency.
