Recipe: Tuna & Celery Salad with Tartar Dressing

If you’re eating the same old salad day in, day out, it’s time to change it up! This Tuna and Celery Salad is a personal favourite – and the homemade dressing finishes it off nicely.

When buying canned tuna make sure you get a good brand. Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna is a good go-to brand as it’s wild and line caught. You’ll need to refer to my paleo mayonnaise recipe too, but don’t worry, it’s so simple you’ll never buy shop mayonnaise again!
