Tuna Salad Niçoise

Serves 4
Time 20 min
Niçoise salad is a classic French dish. Here, we use tuna instead of the traditional anchovies for a more accessible taste. Serve on its own for an excellent main-dish salad.
Special Diets:
Ingredients
  • 1 pound small red potatoes
  • 3/4 pound green beans trimmed
  • 2 (6-ounce) cans tuna packed in water drained
  • 1 cup prepared balsamic vinaigrette divided
  • 1 cup pitted Kalamata or Niçoise olives
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 teaspoons capers drained
  • 1 (5-ounce) package mixed baby greens
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs halved
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley chopped (optional)
Method

Place potatoes in a medium pot with enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil then turn down heat and simmer until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain potatoes and cool slightly, then cut in half.

Cook green beans in boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes, then rinse under cold running water.

Put tuna, 1/2 cup of the vinaigrette, olives, tomatoes and capers into a large bowl and toss gently. Place a generous handful of greens on each of 4 plates, then arrange potatoes, eggs and green beans on plates. Top with the dressed tuna mixture, then drizzle with remaining 1/2 cup vinaigrette. Garnish with parsley and serve.
