This is a salad that came together as a request from my husband. He loves tuna. Viola! I have had nothing but raves for this salad most saying it is a refreshing one. Make sure to chill the chickpeas and tuna well..they will be the last thing you'll add to this colourful, crisp salad.
When you are mixing the dressing and all the individual ingredients the goal is to move quickly until the finish line. If not, the chopped vegetables will become soggy in the dressing while you are preparing the rest of the salad.

How to Make Lettuce ,Tuna and Chickpea Salad


  1. Choose a large, nice looking, not deep bowl for presentation. Remember..the last things to go in your bowl will be the lettuces, tuna, feta, and more tomato for garnish.

    1. In a large bowl, measure out the olive oil, lemon juice.
    2. Add the garlic, salt & pepper. Whisk well and chill while you cut the rest of your ingredients.
  2. 3. Chop, onion, celery, peppers, radishes, carrots. Add to the chilling dressing.
    4. Rinse chickpeas and add to the dressing and continue to chill.
    5. Meanwhile, boil the eggs, chop the tomatoes and crumble the feta and chop the lettuces.
  3. 6. When you are ready to serve, remove the dressing and chopped vegetables from the refrigerator.
    7. Add the lettuce to the bowl and mix all the veggies with the lettuce until coated.
    8. Now you're ready for the tuna, add and mix lightly.
    9. Garnish with feta, quartered additional tomatoes and quartered hard boiled eggs.
