Adapted from Food Network! This is so good.

2 teaspoons dijon mustard
Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing

1 14-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 Kirby cucumber, seeded and chopped
1 bunch scallions, sliced

Make the dressing: Whisk the mustard, lemon zest and lemon juice in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until well blended. Whisk in the dill, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste.

Toss the tuna, chickpeas, cucumber, scallions and tomatoes with 1/4 cup of the dressing in a medium bowl.
Toss the spring greens with the remaining dressing and divide among bowls. Top with the tuna salad.
