-Hey everyone, I'm Judith. Well today, we'll be making a spicy tuna salad. One of my favorite recipes for good all sandwich. So, for the dressing you will need 2 teaspoons of chopped fresh oregano, half a teaspoon of minced garlic, 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, half a teaspoon of kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar. For the tuna salad, you will need tuna half 6 ounce can of light tuna in water, which we've drained, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of dried chilly flakes crushed, 2 finely chops scallions, 1 small red onion finely chopped, 2 tablespoons of [unk], 1 celery rib, finely chopped, 30 cherry tomatoes halved, 2 teaspoons of finely chopped fresh Italian flat leaf parsley, 8 slices of big cut wheat bread and 6 to 8 leaves of lettuce for garnish. Alright, so for a nice quick lunch sandwich, this is what we're gonna do. First of all, let's mix up our tuna salad dressing. So, in the goes the 3 tablespoons of olive oil, our lemon juice, our vinegar, our garlic, and our fresh oregano. I love that smell and it goes great with tuna and of course, a pinch of salt and some black pepper in there too. Alright, so give that good whisk together, and this is the perfect dressing for the tuna salad. See, we don't even need to use. We don't even need to touch mayonnaise, sour cream, and even like that, nice light and healthy beautiful, alright. So, we'll set that aside, and now let's prepare our tuna salad. So, with our cherry tomatoes, let's add in our tuna. Those cans of tuna, which we've drained all the excess water from. Our red onion goes in their too. Our scallions or green onions in there. Now, the red chilli, which is why we call it spicy tuna salad, so that's just gonna give it a lovely kick. Our celery of course for the crunch and our [unk] and the remaining olive oil goes in their too. So, we can just break apart tuna a little bit. Sometimes, it clumps together, and look at the colorful vibrant. It's got plenty of great textures within the salad. The crunchiness of the celery, you know, the sweetness, the saltiness, really, really nice. That is looking fantastic already. So, right at the end when you're ready to serve up your tuna salad, then you put your dressing on top. So, on it goes. We'll give that a good mix now. Oh, smells amazing. Stick with those spoons there, and then last but not the least, once all those flavors are infused together, we'll put on our parsley. We don't wanna do it any [unk] because it's gonna breakup. It's gonna go soggy in the lemon juice, we don't want that, which is nice fresh on top of there. So, let's get our bread and mix some sandwiches, shall we. Alright, so just get a small amount of our tuna salad on top of the bread, and what a great healthy lunch sandwich you can give your kids, really good for anyone and as I said, no fattening Mayo or anything in there. Do the same, one more. I tend to overfill my sandwiches just because I like a lot of filling. Alright, right on top. Give that a little squeeze down and we'll cut down the middle, fantastic. Make sure you don't lose too many of your ingredients inside. Here we go. and there you go, that is how you make your spicy tuna salad.
