Arugula and Fennel Salad With Tuna from the washington post



  • 5 cups lightly packed baby arugula (5 ounces)
  • 1 large fennel bulb, cored and thinly sliced (preferably with a mandoline)
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, each cut in half
  • Two 6- or 7-ounce jars Italian olive-oil-packed tuna, preferably Tonnino brand tuna, oil reserved
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher saltĀ 

Combine the arugula, fennel and tomatoes in a mixing bowl.

Break up the tuna a bit with a fork to create bite-size chunks; add them to the bowl along with 2 tablespoons of oil from the tuna jars. Add the lemon juice and pepper; toss to incorporate. The saltiness of different tuna brands varies widely, so taste first, then season lightly with salt only if needed.

Divide among individual bowls; serve right away.
