Serves 4 (serving size: about 2 ounces tuna, 3 egg slices, 1/3 cup potatoes, 1/4 cup beans, and 2 tablespoons tomato mixture)

This flavor-packed dish combines tuna, hard boiled eggs, potatoes, and lots of veggies.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover with water to 1 inch above eggs. Bring just to a boil. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Drain; cool in ice water 5 minutes. Peel eggs; cut each egg into 4 slices.

Step 2

Place potatoes in pan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 12 minutes. Add beans, and cook 3 minutes. Drain; plunge beans into ice water for 1 minute. Drain well.

Step 3

Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle tuna with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add tuna to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Cut thinly across the grain.

Step 4

Combine remaining salt, oil, vinegar, and mustard in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add tomatoes and olives; toss. Divide eggs, potatoes, beans, and tuna among 4 plates; top with tomato mixture.

Great, light recipe (originally from Cooking Light). My husband is from France, a former sous chef, and he gave it 5 stars - a rarity. I am starting to cook French food for him, but am trying to choose low calorie/fat versions. Our only substitution was kalamata olives, as we could not locate niçoise olives in our grocery stores. Kalamata olives are a bit stronger, but we were okay with that. We liked it so much, we almost ate all the servings, but that would have defeated the purpose of eating a "light" meal.

Outstanding! Prepared exactly as described except I coated one side of the tuna in black and white sesame seeds before searing. Served with Lemony White Bean Mash...delicious!

Wow! What a wonderful change of pace. Perfect for a hot Summer night to have a delicious chilled meal. My husband and boys are total 'meet and potato' guys and they enjoyed this as well. For my youngest I left off the dressing as it's a bit tangy yet for his palate.
