Tuna, avo and balsamic onion salad

Oh, how I love salad! Simple to prepare (and quick!). Healthy, refreshing and nourishing, and hard not to make it delicious – even with the most miniscule array of ingredients. This salad was a particular triumph.


  • Half a head of lettuce
  • Two carrots
  • Two tomatoes
  • Half a cucumber

    Delicious salad

  • One tin of tuna
  • One avocado pear (or more!)
  • A little cheese – if you’re not lactose intolerant (or if you’d like to “cheat” :))
  • An onion
  • Two apples
  • One tablespoons of honey
  • Two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • A few fresh basil leaves
  • Seasoning to taste
  • SCD-safe mayonnaise


  • Chop the onions and sautée them lightly in olive oil until they’re just starting to brown.
  • Add the honey and balsamic vinegar, turn down the heat and allow to simmer while you make the salad.
  • Chop the vegetables, apple and avo, and layer them prettily in a bowl.
  • Put the tuna on top of the salad, then top with the balsamic onions described above.
  • Top with cubed cheese.
  • Serve with mayonnaise.
