- 1 slice of pepper
- 2 spring onions

You can double up the ingredients for a couple of days of lunches. Serve with a thick slice of wholemeal bread with a lower-fat spread. Finish off the lunchbox with a piece of fruit, a slice of malt loaf and no sugar drink.
Wash and chop the spring onions and cucumber. Wash the pepper and cut off a thick slice, then chop it into small pieces.
Drain the mixed beans and tuna.
Mix the mixed herbs, black pepper, mustard powder, oil and lemon juice in a bowl. Stir thoroughly.
Add the vegetables, beans and tuna to the oil mix. Stir thoroughly and make sure the veg and tuna are coated.
Assemble in a lunchbox and chill.
