tuna niçoise salad with Olivia’s favorite dressing
6 oz small new potatoes
1/4 oz green beans
2 x 1/4 oz tuna steaks
olive oil spray, for cooking
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 hard-boiled free-range eggs, quartered
2 cups mixed salad leaves
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
flat-leaf (Italian) parsley, to garnish
Olivia’s favorite dressing
freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 lemon
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos, or to taste (see note)
To make Olivia’s favorite dressing, put the lemon juice,
olive oil and the Bragg Liquid Aminos in a jar and shake
well to combine. Taste and add more liquid aminos if
preferred. Set aside until needed.
Cook the potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling water for
10 minutes, or until bright green and tender. Add the beans
to the pan for the last 2 minutes of cooking, or until tender.
Rinse the beans immediately under cold water and drain well.
Halve the potatoes and set aside to cool.
Spray both sides of the tuna with the oil spray. Sear the
tuna on a barbecue hot plate for 2 minutes on each side for
medium, or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate
and set aside to rest for 2–3 minutes.
Arrange the potato halves on serving plates with the beans,
onion, egg, salad leaves and tomato. Top with the tuna and
drizzle the dressing over the top. Garnish with the parsley,
Note: Bragg Liquid Aminos is a certified non-GMO liquid
protein concentrate. It is made from soybeans and contains
essential and non-essential amino acids. It is available
from most health food stores.
You can replace the tuna steaks in this recipe with a 15 oz
can of tuna in springwater or olive oil. Drain well and
flake into large chunks before adding to the salad.
