  6. Clean all the veggies and add the mixed lettuce to a big bowl
  7. Cut the chives in big chunks and add to the salad bowl together with the basil leaves and cilantro
  8. Cut the tomatoes and paprika in big wedges and add to the salad.
  9. Cut the cucumbers in big chunks too and add to the salad.
  10. Open the (organic) tuna can, drain all the water. Cut the tuna in pieces and add to the salad
  11. Once the quinoa is done, go through it with a fork and make it fluffy again, let it cool for a bit
  12. Dressing:
  13. Mix olive oil and pomegranate molasses in a cup with a little bit of sea salt. The quantity is really up to your liking. Add it to the salad
