5 Minute Lunch: Tuna and Rainbow Salad

5 Minute Lunch: Tuna and Rainbow Salad

My lunch when I’m home with the boys always seems to be a second thought.  The boys will have a sandwich and well I don’t always feel like one but can’t be bothered making something specially for myself.  So to encourage myself to make something healthy for lunch I put together three ingredients to make this delicious and healthy salad within minutes.

So next time you think you don’t have time to make yourself a satisfying lunch, think again.


250gm Rainbow Salad – a mix of carrot, beetroot and broccoli

425gm Tuna in springwater, drained

1/2 Cup Low Fat Mayonnaise

  1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well to combine.

Best eaten on the day it is made, alternatively keep all the ingredients separate and mix together each day.  The tuna will last up to three days once opened.

Serves 2-3

    Would you be able to use the mixture to make into sandwiches and freeze?

      Hi Toni, you definitely add the mix to a sandwich, but I don’t think it would be suitable for freezing.

    Yum! Good idea. Only thing is I would swap the low-fat mayo to a good full-fat one or even some natural yoghurt and mustard. Low-fat mayos generally full of sugar and veg oils.

      Hi Georgia, you sure can.

    What a great easy idea, I would pile this onto cruskits for lunch at my desk.
