I wanted to try something a bit different………………and isn’t it just amazing when it turns out delicious! I fancied Greek style but healthy and with a kick, so here is my Greek inspired lettuce sandwiches.

1 Red mini Cos Lettuce (or any lettuce of your choice)

1 tin of tuna in spring water

2 tbsp of black olives – halved

1/2 red onion – chopped finely

1 tsp of chilli flakes

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp mayonnaise low fat

1/2 avocado – sliced

 

  1. Mix tuna, olives, balsamic, chilli, mayo and onion together in a bowl
  2. Wash lettuce and place on a plate
  3. Top lettuce with the tuna mix and place avocado slices on top
  4. Place another lettuce leaf to close the sandwich and serve. Yum!

Beware if you are eating with your hands, you WILL get messy!
