4. Spoon the dressing into the base of a large salad bowl, then top with the dressed salad. Place the remainder of the dressing in small sauce bowls to serve on the side.

5. Cut the tuna into 6 slices and place to the side of the salad, then place the gem lettuce to the side. Drizzle everything with olive oil and garnish with the dill and lemon wedges.
