  • 160g can Essential Tuna Chunks In Sunflower Oil, drained
  • 6 cocktail gherkins, drained and chopped
  • 3 tbsp Essential Greek Style Yogurt
  • 1 Essential Lemon, scrubbed, zested then halved
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp essential Dijon Mustard
  • 400g can Essential Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ x 20g pack dill, leaves roughly chopped
  • 4 thick slices bread
  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • Essential Salted Butter, to spread
  • Salad leaves, to serve


  1. Tip the tuna into a bowl, mix with the gherkins, yogurt, lemon zest, shallot, mustard, beans and most of the dill. Season well with salt, black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

  2. Toast the bread, then rub it with the cut face of the garlic. Spread with butter, then pile the tuna and bean mixture on top. Sprinkle with the reserved dill. Serve with salad leaves dressed with a little more lemon juice.

Cook’s tip

This mixture also works well stirred through pasta or piled inside jacket potatoes. To make it a melt, heat a little Cheddar cheese onto your toast under the grill before topping with the tuna mix. Parsley, basil, mint, tarragon or a mixture would easily work in place of the dill.
