Tuna Nicoise salad

My version of tuna nicoise. Another salad with a bit of a difference and so over easy to make 😉


  • 1 large free range egg
  • Mixed leaf lettuce
  • handful sugar snap peas
  • 1 radish
  • handful cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small can John west tuna – or a fresh fillet
  • For the dressing – olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, 1 clove garlic, 1 tsp honey.


  1. Hard boil the egg – Add the egg to a small saucepan of water and boil for 4 and 1/2 minutes. Cover and leave to cool for 12 minutes. Drain and place under cold water.
  2. Chop the sugar snaps, tomatoes and radish.
  3. Arrange these and the lettuce on a plate and place tuna on top.
  4. Peel and slice the egg and place on top.
  5. Make the dressing – Use 2/3 olive oil to 1/3 balsamic vinegar and add the other ingredients and pour on top.
