Tomatoes and tuna were meant for each other, and fresh tarragon seals the deal. Soaking the onion in cold water tames the heat and sweetens its taste.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.


  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Two 6-ounce cans chunk light tuna in olive oil, drained
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup packed coarsely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
  • 8 cups torn lettuce or mixed greens
  • 1 pound small ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges


Place the onion in a small bowl and cover with cold water. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Drain.

Whisk the mayonnaise, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the tuna, celery, tarragon and the drained onion; stir to combine. Serve on a bed of lettuce (or mixed greens) with tomato and lemon wedges.
