High protein Tuna and Black Bean Salad

High protein Tuna and Black Bean Salad

This high protein dish is great for filling you up, repairing muscles and boosting your nutrient levels. Oh, did we mention it’s also super easy?

What you’ll need:

1 can tuna in sunflower oil, drained

300g dry lentils – either green or brown

350g can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 red pepper

½  small red onion

1-2 plum tomatoes

Large bunch coriander, stems removed

For the dressing

Juice of 1 lime

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1-2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 tsp cumin

½  tsp oregano

pinch of salt

Method:

Cook the lentils according to the directions, leaving them firm and not mushy. Drain and put to one side.

Meanwhile make the dressing by putting all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisking to combine. Set aside.

Finely dice the pepper, onion, and tomatoes and roughly chop the coriander.

In a large bowl, place the tuna, black beans, pepper, onion, tomatoes, and lentils. Add the dressing and toss to combine. Add the coriander and serve immediately or chill covered in the fridge for at least an hour to let the flavors combine.

You can omit the tuna for a vegan alternative. Or add some feta for added punch!
