Ingredients

  • 800g new potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 200g canned tuna in springwater, drained
  • 2 handfuls cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cucumber, chopped
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • Basil leaves to garnish (optional)

 

Method

1 Cook the potatoes in gently boiling water for 20 minutes, until tender.

2 Meanwhile, in a salad bowl, mix together the lemon juice, garlic and parsley. Add the red onion and set aside.

3 Drain the cooked potatoes and add them to the salad bowl while they are hot. (They will absorb the flavour of the dressing as they cool down).

4 When the potatoes are cool, add the tuna, tomatoes and cucumber. Stir everything together gently and season with black pepper. Serve immediately, or cover and chill to serve later.

For a vegetarian version, replace the tuna with 100g reduced-fat feta cheese, cut into chunks.
