admin's picture
  Small red potatoes 1 Pound, unpeeled, quartered
  Eggs 2
  Fresh green beans/One 10-ounce package frozen cut green beans, thawed 3⁄4 Pound, frozen
  White wine vinegar/Cider vinegar 14 Cup (224 tbs)
  Olive oil 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Dijon mustard 1 Tablespoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Basil 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cherry tomatoes 1 Pint, halved
  Canned pitted black olives 6 Ounce, drained (1 Can)
  Canned water packed tuna 6 1⁄2 Ounce, drained (1 Can)

1. Place the potatoes and eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes just test tender, about 20 minutes. Remove the eggs after 15 minutes of cooking, cool them under cold running water, then peel them and finely chop.
2. Meanwhile, cut the fresh beans into 2-inch lengths.
3. When the potatoes are just tender, add the beans (fresh or thawed frozen) to the saucepan and continue cooking the potatoes and beans for about 2 minutes, or until the beans are just crisp-tender. Drain the potatoes and beans.
4. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, mustard, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper. Place the still-warm potatoes and beans in a serving bowl and pour the dressing over them. Toss to coat well.
5. Add the cherry tomatoes and olives to the bowl. Flake the tuna into the bowl with a fork. Toss gently to combine all the ingredients. Sprinkle the chopped egg on top.
