Swedish Tuna Salad



This salad brings back memories for me. I call this a Swedish Tuna Salad because the first time I ate it was at my Swedish neighbor across the street when I was a kid. I never really got the recipe but I always remembered what was in it. I hope. This salad can be made with canned green beans too but I prefer fresh. Originally it also had potatoes in it and you can always serve those on the side for non low-carbing family members or friends. Pasta would be an option too. This is great to prepare up front and is perfect to take to work. Also great for those hot summer days when you do not want the stove to warm up the kitchen. Then you need to use canned beans or steam them in the microwave.

Servings: 3
7    
oz  
green beans (200 gram)
3
oz
onion sliced ( 90 gram)
3.5
oz
cucumber (100 gram)
5
oz
tomato, diced (140 gram)
9
oz
Tuna, canned in oil (2 small cans)
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1  
Cook the beans, but don't overcook they are best when still a bit crunchy. Let them cool down while moving on to step 2.
2
Slice all the other vegetables and mix in a bowl.
3
Add the beans and tuna.
4
Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.


Tips
If you like you could add a bit of mayo, lemon juice or Olive Oil to the salad. ( not added to the nutritional value)
