Tuna Niscoise salad • Photo by PhilAshley.com

This salad is one of our favorites which we have often in the summer months as it’s so quick and easy to make after you get in from work. Although as you’re preparing the vegetables, it may not look like much, as you start adding all the ingredients together, it really starts piling up. With the potatoes and croutons it’s also very filling.

You can also add other ingredients to this salad, like crispy bacon, Cheese, green beans, shredded chicken, we often make Turkey Schnitzels and slice these on top.

Tuna Salad Niscoise

Serves 2


2 eggs
Handful of baby potatoes
2 inches of cucumber sliced into chunks
1/2 tin of tuna
(Save the other half for sandwiches for lunch)
1 1/2 tomatoes diced
Handful of red onion
A few olives
The crusts from your loaf of bread
1/4 iceberg lettuce sliced


Boil your potatoes until soft but not mushy then cool in cold water, pat dry then slice them and arrange at the bottom of two plates.

While the potatoes are boiling, pop in the eggs to hard boil too.

Cut up your bread crusts and fry in a little olive oil and salt to make the croutons.

Built up your salad by piling the chopped lettuce on the potatoes then scatter the cucumber, onion and tomatoes, then the olives, tuna and eggs, lastly the croutons all drizzled with the homemade Caesar style dressing and some fresh pepper.
