This is a good luncheon salad or starter for the hot weather. It is tasty, does not need extra salt and takes minutes to prepare. Served with a bowl of avocados and some good homemade bread - preferably wholewheat it is a full meal for 3 or 4 people. If you are serving it as a starter use olives to garnish and serve on a bed of lettuce. It can also be used to stuff tomatoes and make tuna sandwiches or rolls. 1 can Tuna in oil -- a small tin will feed 3 people 1 large green pepper -- chopped 4 medium fresh tomatoes -- chopped 1 tablespoon Chili mayonnaise -- a little more or less (use more Tabasco if this is not available) 4 tablespoons salad cream or mayonnaise -- a little more or less 4 drops Tabasco sauce -- I like the green one! 6 sliced olives - black or stuffed -- black give a better contrast Mix altogether - it will be sloppy - keep chilled until ready to eat and serve with good homemade bread. A dish of avocado seasoned with balsamic vinegar and olive oil goes well with this salad. Double up quantities if you need to serve more people.
