Warm Tuna Salad Niçoise

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/warm_tuna_salad_ni_oise.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 1991

With the increasing popularity and availability of fresh tuna, it makes sense to update the classic Mediterranean salad Nicoise with fresh fish rather than canned.

2 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place potatoes in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl, reserving steaming water. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil and toss gently. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. Place green beans in the steamer basket, cover and steam until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the steamer and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tuna and saute until the flesh is opaque, 3 to 5 minutes. Spoon tuna over potato mixture. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add garlic and anchovies and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add remaining 3 tablespoons vinegar and broth. Bring to a boil, stirring, and boil for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in mustard. Spoon over the potato mixture. Add green beans, red peppers, capers and lemon juice and toss gently. Taste and adjust seasonings.
