  • Woolworths Neil Ellis Lemon Lime Chardonnay 2019


  • 2 x 80 g Woolworths tuna with sundried tomatoes and herbs sachets
  • 1 T Woolworths light tangy mayonnaise
  • sriracha sauce, to taste
  • lemon juice, to taste
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Woolworths Carb Clever seed crackers, for serving
  • iceberg lettuce 1 head, broken into cups or wedges, for serving
  • 1 Woolworths snacking peppers punnet
  • Woolworths exotic tomatoes, for serving
  • lemon wedges, for serving

Cooking Instructions

1. Combine the tuna with the mayonnaise and a squeeze of sriracha, add a little lemon and season to taste.

2. Serve with the crackers or spooned into lettuce cups with the peppers, tomatoes and lemon.

Cook's note: I think I ate too much tuna in my student days, so I went off it. But Woolworths’ flavoured tuna has rekindled my love affair. I like to eat it spiked with a little heat, in this case sriracha sauce, but Tabasco sauce is also great. Lemon brightens it up and serving it on a platter makes it more of an occasion. If you only have canned tuna handy, then simply add a spoonful of tomato sauce to the mix.
