Wild Tuna, Bean & Pasta Salad in a Honey Mustard Vinaigrette


It's not glamorous and I wouldn't serve it to guests, but it is delicious, filling, easy and best of all, ideal for packed lunches since it can be prepacked ahead of time without any need to keep the dressing separate as there is nothing to go soggy. Perfect for kids as well as adults.

What you need


1 can wild albacore tuna. This one is no. 1 rated by WWF for being dolphin-safe and sustainable.

2 cups pre-cooked fusili

2 cups steamed green beans, chopped

2 spring onions chopped finely


4 tablespoons olive oil

4 tablespoons balsamic

2 teaspoons honey

2 teaspoon wholegrain mustard

Salt & pepper


Put your pasta and green beans onto boil in separate pans. Allow to cool.

Combine the salad ingredients in a jar and shake until fully mixed together.

Mix together the pasta, tuna, beans, spring onions and dressing. Refrigerate until required.

Serves 2 adults
