We are having unusually warm weather right now -- it was almost 90 degrees yesterday! When it is this warm, a quick and simple recipe for a dish which can be eaten at room temperature makes an ideal meal. Red Potato and Tuna Toss is one such recipe. If you want something more elaborate, turn it into a variation on Salade Niçoise. Either way you can't go wrong, so keep your cool and serve this when the temperature soars!
Red Potato and Tuna Toss
3 oz. tuna in pouch
1 lb. small red potatoes, cooked and quartered
1/2 bell pepper (any color), diced
1/2 tsp. dried dill
1/4 C. olive oil
Combine all ingredients. Serves 2.
Note: Turn this into a Salade Niçoise Toss by adding 12 pitted niçoise olives, 12 halved grape tomatoes, and 1/4 lb. cooked fresh green beans cut into one-inch pieces. Serve topped with one quartered hard-boiled egg per serving.
