Updated on May 26, 2011

Recipe for Tuna Salad with Capers, Potatoes and Mint

Tinned tuna is great in a tuna salad. This tuna salad recipe is easy to make, and the addition of capers and mint takes the taste to a new level.

It can be served as either a light snack or a main meal, and is also great for picnics or buffets.

Ingredients - Tuna and Potato Salad with Capers and Mint - Serves 2

*300g new potatoes, diced, cooked and cooled.

1 tin tuna chunks in brine - or fresh tuna

Handful of fresh mint leaves roughly chopped

Dessert spoon of capers

2 large spring onions thinly sliced

1 dessert spoon mayonnaise

Handful of salad leaves

Handful of cherry tomatoes

Salad dressing to taste

* Potatoes should be cut to approx 1" square pieces and will need approx 15 mins boiling time to cook. To check they are cook insert a sharp knife into a couple of pieces, the knife should slice through the potato with no resistance. Once cooked remove from the heat, drain and leave to cool to room temperature.

How To Make the Tuna Salad

In a large bowl mix together the diced potatoes, spring onions, capers, mint and mayonnaise.

Place the salad leaves and cherry tomatoes on a serving plate and drizzle with salad dressing if required.

Add the potato mix to the plate and top with tuna chunks.

Serve either on it's own or with crusty bread for a great summer lunch or evening meal

Other Salad Suggestions

 This potato part of this salad is a versatile dish.

It can be used on its own as a side dish, or as the basis for a chicken salad rather than tuna.

The capers make it a perfect accompaniment for other types of fish such as smoked mackerel or smoked salmon.

If you're looking for healthier options then replace the mayo with a drizzle of olive oil.

If you find spring onions can be a bit strong try replacing them with chives for a milder taste.
