Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cover potatoes with cold water in a medium saucepan, season with salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until the potatoes are just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Slice into a large bowl and toss with 1/4 cup dressing.

  • Cook green beans in boiling salted water until just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, refresh under cold water and pat dry. Add to the potatoes along with another 1/4 cup dressing. Toss gently to coat.

  • Transfer to a platter or individual plates. Arrange tomatoes and eggs around the outside; scatter tuna, olives, onions, capers and parsley over the top. Arrange anchovies decoratively; drizzle with the remaining dressing.

Healthy & Filling Changes I made; used a good quality pre-prepared dressing from store black beans instead of green cocktail/pickled onions instead of red onion - omitted capers and anchovies added slices of roasted red bell pepper - mixed black beans tuna potatoes and red bell pepper all together in a bowl with the oil and served on a bed of green leaf lettuce and tomato wedges. We enjoyed this for lunch today it was tasty and very filling - would certainly work as a main meal. I split the amounts to serve 2 instead of 4. It took 35-40 minutes to prepare - the small red potatoes took more than 10 minutes to cook... when I realized they were still firm after the 10 minutes I increased the heat and kept them at a high rolling boil for a further 10-15 minutes. While they bubbled away I was able to carry on with prepping everything else... and serving some of the Tuna to our suddenly fixated cats! lol A good recipe and one I look forward to enjoying again soon - I could forsee making this with tuna filets and not mixing everything together would make a nice quick meal even if entertaining. Pros: Quick healthy tasty filling Cons: None really Read More
