Tuna-Kiwi Salad

I have the devil of a time getting kiwi into my diet. Given it is packed with vitamin C and E as well folate, potassium, fiber, carotenoids, polyphenols, chlorophyll, glutathione and pectin, it's a great addition. Especially given all this comes with a very low calorie count.

Serves 2.


1 can of water packed tuna
2 kiwis, peeled (use carrot peeler) and chopped
1 T of finely chopped onion
1 T of olive oil
1 T of fresh cilantro (or 1 t of dried)
2 T of toasted pine nuts (pecans can be substituted)
2 cups of shredded romaine lettuce (or baby spinach leaves) arranged on two plates.

Mix all ingredients except the nuts and greens. Let sit anywhere from 30 minutes to a day so flavors will mingle. Divide into two portions and serve on bed of greens and sprinkle nuts. Salt and pepper as desired.
