Summer mange tout, radish and tuna salad



If you have the time, put the pea shoots in iced water for 30 minutes or so, simply to refresh them and make the leaves sprightly. If you don’t have the time just rinse the leaves under cold water
Prepare the other vegetables. Rinse the radishes and trim the leaves and tails. Finely slice each one. Slice the mangetout on the diagonal into delicate, thin strips
Make the dressing by pouring the oil, vinegar and lemon juice into a bowl. Add the honey and Dijon mustard and lightly whisk. Season to taste
Put the pea shoots, radishes, mangetout and cannellini beans in the largest bowl you own. Working gently, add the flaked tuna and combine. Pour over the dressing and mix to coat the ingredients. Transfer to plates and serve with slices of warm fresh bread
