makes 4-6 footlong baquettes:

3 cans of tuna ( i like with John West with oil, but any will do)

2 sticks of celery, chopped finely

1 onion, chopped finely or grated

1 carrot, chopped finely or grated

1 appel, chopped finely or grated

3-4 cucumbers, chopped finely

salad dressing (oil based)

salt, pepper, cayenne powder

garlic powder (or fresh, but I prefer powder for this as it’s not so strong)




chop, grate, or proces all vegetables and fruit until quite small.

Drain tuna and place in a bowl, season to taste with salt, pepper, cayenne and garlic. Add salad dressing until a smooth puree forms.


Add all the chopped ingredients and mix well. Add more dressing if needed

to serve I  made a little side of rucola, cherry tomatoes, olives, and feta cheese, but this is intirely optional, I just like the look.


I used this shop bought dressing as it’s nice and mellow and not pungent with vinegar.

You could use mayonaise, I like this lighter version.
