Live Below the Line - Lentil and tuna salad

Total cost: £2.55
For 10 people = 25.5p each.


If you are taking part in Live Below the Line you should really consider making this salad. I organised a Live Below the Line lunch for Christian Aid and it went down a treat, people were amazed how little it cost and how yummy it was.

The costing is for 10 people as this could feed a family over 2 days who are living below the Line.

What you need:

500g green lentils: 95p
1 can of tuna: 49p
3 tomatoes: 42p
4 eggs:  40p
½ red onion: 9p
Salt & pepper: 5p
Olive oil and Vinegar: 15p

Cook the lentils for about 30 minutes or as directed on the packet. Once they are cooked wait for them to cool. Boil your eggs, cut the tomatoes into small pieces and the red onion into small slices.

In a bowl put the lentils and add to them the tuna, chopped tomatoes and sliced red onion and cut eggs. Add 1 tbsp of vinegar and 2 tbsp of olive oil and add salt and pepper (add more depending on taste). Mix everything together.
