Tuna Nicoise

Tuna Nicoise

What to do with a can of tuna? Here's an exciting but quick way of creating a delicious dish with an otherwise quite ordinary fish type.

Ingredients:
Eggs 2
Green beans 200g
Lettuce, 3 cups torn
Black olives 12
Mayonnaise, ¼ cup
Lemon 1 juice
Potatoes 2 medium
Tuna 1x 185g tin in spring water

Cooking method
Combine the lemon juice and mayonnaise in a cup and stir together. Set aside.

Bring a pot of water to the boil and add the eggs. Boil approx 5 minutes, until soft boiled. Remove from the pot and cool under running water.

At the same time, in another pot, boil the potatoes until cooked through. 1 minute before the potatoes are done, add the beans to the pot. Drain and set aside until they’re cool enough to handle, then slice the potatoes into quarters. Peel and halve the eggs.

Divide the lettuce between 2 plates. Arrange the egg, potato, green beans, olives and tuna on top. Dress with the lemony mayo.
