Fillers are so versatile. Made up in minutes, they can be kept in the fridge and used to make so many quick and tasty meals. Not just great for sandwiches, wraps and salads try them on top of a hot jacket potato or stirred through some pasta for a speedy pasta salad, perfect for packed lunches. Time and money saving tip: look out for canned tuna that comes in oil rather than brine as it provides a great dressing for your filler


  • 1 tin of canned tuna in oil, drained
  • 1 yellow pepper, finely diced
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1/3 of a cucumber, halved and seeds scooped out, finely diced
  • Juice of lemon
  • 1tsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

As it is, this filler is very healthy, but for a little treat, add a dollop of mayonnaise instead of the balsamic vinegar


  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Fork through to mix. Keep chilled and covered in fridge.
