Serves 1-2

Ingredients:

1-2 heads romaine lttuce, chopped

6 oz. canned tuna (organic or low sodium best - make sure it does not contain soy)

1-2 hard boiled eggs, sliced or quartered

10-12 olives of your choice (I like black pitted olives)

Fresh green beans (I like french green beans; 1-2 handfuls should work well)

Sliced cucumber (optional)

1-2 small or medium potatoes, cooked & diced (optional)

1 large tomato, sliced or 5-10 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

For dressing:

Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar & stoneground mustard in a bottle - can add as many herbs & spices as you would like such as onions, parsley or shallots.

Place all salad ingredients on bed of romaine lettuce and drizzle on homemade dressing!
