I am getting quite good at salad

I have always been a bit rubbish at salads for work and have always ended up buying them, usually from Vital Ingredients which is lovely but not cheap and usually has a massive queue on a Monday (that post weekend guilt diet, they are all back on the burgers by Wednesday).
So I have been taking my own for a few weeks now and I would like to say today's salad plus my home made dressing was immense.

What you need:
For the salad:
  • a small gem lettuce chopped
  • small chopped red pepper 
  • a carrot peeled and grated 
  • a very small red onion sliced
  • handful of cherry tomatoes
  • tin of tuna drained and squeezed a bit to reduce the water content. 
  • cooked wild rice (I use a small cup to measure out and is just right for me) 

For the dressing:
  • olive oil (1 part)
  • cider vinegar (2 part)
  • squeeze of honey
  • teaspoon of grain mustard

What to do:

  1. Mix all the salad ingredients together and make sure the rice is cold and fully drained
  2. Put the dressing ingredients into a small jam jar and give a good shake.
  3. When transporting to work have the salad in a container and only put the dressing on when you're about to eat. Give it all a big stir ideally in a bigger separate bowl.

Serves 1 and ½
