Tasty Tuna Salad with Horopito

Tasty Tuna Salad with Horopito

Dean Fountain

Quick and Easy - Tuna Salad

This is a simple but rewarding salad on those busy nights!  or last minute bbq invites!

Serves 4

What you need to buy... (most things you'll already have in the cupboard)

1 Large brown onion (thinly sliced)

1 Large firm tomato quartered (beefsteak tomatoes are best) - or sundried tomatoes and capsicums if you feel like splashing out!

1 425g can of tuna in springwater

1 Large butter lettuce or 2 small ones (enough to cover the salad bowl)

1/2 cup of pitted olives (I prefer assorted)

1 tablespoon of capers - the smaller ones are best

1/4 cup of fresh parsley leaves (continental if available)

1/2 teaspoon of horopito seasoning

For the dressing

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Squirt of lemon juice (or juice of 2 small lemons if lucky enough to have a tree!)

1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley.

 

 

So how to make the perfect dish...

boil a pan of water - blanch the sliced onion in the water for ten seconds (be quick).

slice the tomato into wedges

drain the water from the tuna

arrange the lettuce on a serving platter or bowl

top with onion, tomato, tuna chunks, olives, capers with a sprinkle of horopito seasoning and finish with parsley.

 

To make the dressing

whisk the oil, lemon and vinegar in a small bowl.  Stir in the chopped parsley.  Either drizzle over the salad or put in a gravy boat and let the guests serve themselves.

Sit back and look like a pro.. grab a glass of wine and swan around the kitchen - careful to avoid the washing up!
