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!

This refreshing salad is perfect for a quick and healthy lunch. The combination of tuna, celery, and a tangy tartar dressing provides a delightful mix of flavours and textures.
