Stir in a large can of drained tuna, or serve with seared tuna steaks for a more substantial meal.

Method

  1. Put the green beans into a heatproof bowl with 2 tbsp water. Cover with cling film, pierce and microwave on high for 2 mins. Rinse in cold water and put into a large bowl.
  2. Rinse the chopped red onion in a sieve, to remove the strong flavour, and then add to the bowl.
  3. Gently mix in the celery, canned beans and tomatoes.
  4. To make the dressing: Put mustard, honey, and lemon zest and juice into a small jar with the oil. Season and shake to mix. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and stir lightly.
