Lamb’s lettuce and tuna and Greek yoghurt dressing: a lunch fit for a king
Are you looking for a fish delicacy to eat on the seashore or at your PC, thinking about the beach that awaits you in a few weeks time? Lamb’s lettuce is perfect with tuna sauce! The dark and crunchy leaves create a pleasant contrast with the softness and pink colour of the sauce.
The recipe is very simple: mix the tuna with a few spoons of Greek yoghurt and, if you want a more decisive taste, add some anchovies and some capers.
Now that the sauce is ready, all you have to do is season it and enjoy this simple but alternative recipe.
Fish isn’t for you and you prefer meat dishes? Chicken is also a great ingredient to add to Baby Leaf salads to create unique colourful, tasty, fresh and healthy dishes.
You can create a variation of the classic Caesar Salad with baby lettuce, chicken, bread croutons, slithers of parmesan cheese and Caesar dressing, or let your imagination go wild and add to the chicken and Baby Leaf salads your favourite ingredients: peppers for a Mexican touch, potatoes if you love carbohydrates, tomatoes, olives, mozzarella and some basil leaves if you prefer Mediterranean flavours.
Baby Leaf salad and legumes
Last but not least, we recommend that you combine baby leaf salads with legumes. The protein in legumes, combined with the freshness and mineral salts contained in the Baby Leaf salads, helps you fight summer fatigue without feeling uncomfortable, and boost your energy at the same time.
Try baby lettuce and peas, lamb’s lettuce and chickpeas, beans and baby spinach: if you also add some barley or spelt you will have a complete lunch from a nutritional point of view, a beautiful dish and an excellent taste even in the sultry summer heat!
