Tuna Nicoise Style Salad

The weather is getting warmer and Summer is on its way.  Bring on yummy salads!  I have left the potato out from the traditional version of a Tuna Nicoise as many of our Body Beyond Baby Mums are currently 'no sugar'.  It still tastes delicious!

Ingredients (Serves 4)

2 x 200g tuna steaks
2 x boiled eggs, quartered
400g green beans, blanched
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
12 pitted kalamata olives
¼ red onion, sliced
2 cups mixed salad leaves
1 cup continental parsley, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard

•    Heat a frying pan on high heat
•    Cook tuna steaks and cook for 2-3 minutes each side
•    Let tuna rest while preparing the rest of the salad
•    Whisk olive oil, vinegar and mustard together and set aside
•    Divide salad ingredients among four plates
•    Flake the tuna over the prepared salads
•    Drizzle with the dressing
•    Enjoy for lunch or dinner
