Hearty tuna salad with mustard dressing and chickpea croutons

Hearty lunch salads, is there anything better? At least we’re two big fans. This tuna salad with mustard dressing may not sound so exciting but the fact is that we moaned loudly (yes, it happens) when we ate it.

What really makes this salad so good? In our opinion, it is a combination of the colorful vegetables, the soft mustard dressing and the crispy croutons. In addition, it is nice to look at and contains many different colors!

We usually make our mayonnaise ourselves! There is a great recipe in our cookbook (buy it here), but for those of you who do not have the strength, time or will, you a clean vegan mayonnaise from the store is perfectly fine too.
