Prep mins: 10
Cook mins: 20
8 baby red delight potatoes, unpeeled and halved
150g small green beans, topped and halved
4 Woolworths Select free-range eggs, at room temperature
3 small fresh skinless tuna steaks
1 baby cos lettuce
½ cup Woolworths Select pitted Kalamata olives
2 roma tomatoes, cut into wedges
½ cup coarsely chopped fresh continental parsley
2 tablespoons Woolworths Select Greek yoghurt
1 tablespoon Woolworths Select red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Woolworths Select Spanish Classic olive oil, plus extra to drizzle tuna
1 teaspoon Woolworths Select Dijon mustard
1. Cook potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 12 minutes or until tender. Place the beans in a small colander and lower into potato water, cook beans for 1 minute or until bright green. Transfer to a bowl of cold water. Lower eggs on a spoon into a medium saucepan of boiling salted water and boil for 6-7 minutes. Drain. Refresh in cold water, peel and halve. Drain potatoes and let steam in a colander.
2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Drizzle tuna steaks with oil. Season. Cook tuna, turning once, for 1- 2 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking, transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, separate and wash cos lettuce leaves. Drain on a clean tea towel. Cut tuna into chunks.
3. Layer all the ingredients into 4 bowls, topping with tuna chunks and eggs. Whisk yoghurt vinegar, oil, and mustard in a small bowl. Season. Spoon over salad.
Tip1: Use the Nicoise ingredients by thickly slicing potatoes, omitting egg and tuna to fill large baguettes spread with Dijon mustard and whole egg mayonnaise, then cut into pieces for vegetarian picnic rolls.
Tip2: Substitute salmon fillets cooked to your liking or cooked barbecue chicken for tuna steaks.
Tip3: Use a bamboo skewer inserted into the middle of potatoes to check if they are tender.
