  • 500g trimmed green beans
  • 240g tuna fillets in oil
  • lemon juice or balsamic vinegar, to taste
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons EVO oil
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • some basil leaves

  • Cut the longer ones in half and arrange them in the salad bowl.
  • Drain tuna filet from the oil. Add the tuna, carrots, basil, baby corn and the red lettuce to the green beans.
  • Season with oil, salt and toss all ingredients gently to combine.
