It was a hot day whole of yesterday with minimal breeze to say the least. I was feeling lethargic from the heat, so even when hunger beckoned, I lacked the motivation to step into the kitchen much less stay there any longer than needed. I knew I wanted something simple to make and cold for dinner. What could be more perfect than leftover roasted vegetables and ready-at-hand ingredients to make a salad?
1/2 a can tuna, water-packed but drained
1/8th of a large red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 a plum tomato, wedged
2 cups of roasted vegetables (pumpkin,cauliflower, broccoli flowerets)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp lemon juice
Place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Drizzle lemon juice and toss lightly. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.
The fresh onions added a spicy kick to the salad. Together with a thick hunk of wholemeal bread, this simple dinner really hit the spot and I was satisfied.
