Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add potatoes to the basket; cover and steam until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to a medium bowl. Add vinaigrette and toss gently with a flexible spatula to coat. Let the potatoes stand in the dressing for a minute or two. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes to a platter or divide between 2 plates.

  • Add green beans to the steamer basket, cover and steam until tender-crisp, 4 to 6 minutes. Rinse under cold running water to stop the cooking.

  • Arrange the green beans, chickpeas, tomatoes, tuna, and eggs on the platter (or plates). Drizzle the remaining dressing from the bowl over the salad. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
