A great lunch idea for those that don’t like tuna!  You can throw this together in literally minutes!

Ingredients
1 can light tuna canned in water, drained
1 tsp dijon mustard (I like the grainy one)
1 tsp olive oil
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 olives, chopped (I used kalamata)
1 Tbsp chopped green onion
3 sliced cherry tomatoes
1 chopped sun-dried tomato (the dried variety that you re-constitue with hot water–not the ones packed in oil! Can be omitted if you don’t have on hand)

Directions
In a small bowl add together the dijon mustard, olive oil, balsamic vinegar. Mix until combined, a wisk works best. Add in chopped cherry tomato, olives, sundried tomato and green onion. Mix. Lastly break tuna into chunks and add to the dressing and toss.
