Lemon tuna salad

This is a variation on a salade nicoise I have made a few times. That recipe has a LOT of oil in it. And is for four people. So I mixed it up a bit and reduced the quantities - 3 serves for us.
Start with lovely fresh greens - tonight I used ready washed spinach and rocket, cherry tomatoes and red onion sliced real thin
Add some zing - 60 g pitted kalamata olives
Add some stuff to fill you up - a can of white beans and two eggs I hardboiled earlier in the Thermomix
Now to make the dressing - I put some thyme from the garden in the TM with a clove of garlic
Whizz 2 seconds at speed 7
Scrape down and add the following: 
Juice of one lemon
1/4 teaspoon raw sugar
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
ground salt and pepper
And the secret ingredient this amazing lemon infused olive oil
whizz 5 seconds at speed 6
Arrange drained tuna steaks (springwater) on the top of the salad and give the tin to the ninja cat to enjoy. Then pour over the dressing and serve! This is so filling neither of us had bread with it tonight. It will stretch to 4 or 5 serves just add more eggs and tuna or have crusty bread with it
three serves at 11 Pro Points each
