1 tbsp lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste

Seeing as how I detest mayo but love tuna...this salad would be ideal for me!

Every where I go today, I am finding wonderful treats for my meatless lent - thanks for this. My new favourite food are butter beans, I seem to go through a tin on my own (blushing slightly)!
Thank you for the recipe - yummy!
