Tuna Salad Nicoise
4 small new
potatoes, red, quartered
1/2 lbs. green snap beans, trimmed
1/3 cups reduced-sodium, fat-free chicken broth
2 tbsp red
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp olive
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
black pepper, or to taste
4 pieces Boston lettuce
6 oz canned chunk white tuna in water, drained and flaked
tbsp capers, drained
8 items olives, sliced in half
Place potatoes in a large saucepan and pour enough water over them to cover by 2
inches. Set pan over high heat and bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium
and simmer 6 minutes. Add green beans and cook until potatoes are fork-tender
and green beans are crisp-tender, about 1 to 2 minutes more; drain and transfer
vegetables to a large bowl.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together broth, vinegar, mustard and oil.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add half of dressing to potatoes and green
beans; toss to coat.
Place 1 lettuce leaf on each of 4 plates. Top each with 1/4 of potato-green bean
mixture, then top with 1 1/2 ounces of tuna, 1/2 tablespoon of capers and 4
olive halves. Drizzle each with 1/4 of remaining dressing.
