  • 2.2 lb baby new potatoes scrubbed
  • 21 oz French dwarf green beans, topped and tailed
  • 24 baby tomatoes wiped and halved
  • 1 small red onion very finely sliced
  • 24 black olives stoned (pitted)
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 24 quails' eggs hard boiled for 3 minutes in boiling water, then transferred to cold water

  • 3 tablespoons of virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 large clove of garlic peeled and crushed
  • 6 large fresh tuna steaks or 12 small
  • Extra olive oil


  • Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water until just soft. Drain and put in a large dish.
  • Cook the beans, ensuring that they remain crunchy. Drain and refresh under cold water and mix with the potatoes.
  • Add the tomatoes, onion, olives, half the parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Peel and halve the eggs and mix into the salad. Add the anchovies.
  • Mix the oil, lemon juice and garlic together and sprinkle all over the salad.
  • Finally, brush the tuna fish with a little oil and grill (broil) or char-grill until just cooked through.
  • Place each steak on a bed of salad, sprinkle with the remaining parsley and serve or chill until needed.
  • For a more economical alternative, cook 540 g (180 oz) of fresh tuna then flake the flesh into the salad.
