Tuna Niçoise Salad

Yields: 6 servings

Time: 20 minutes prep, 45 minutes cooking, 1hr 5 minutes total

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound baby red potatoes, larger ones cut in half
  • 6 large eggs, refrigerator temperature
  • ¾ pound string beans, strings and ends removed
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh tuna steaks
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered depending on size
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup nicoise or black oil-cured olives, pitted and halved lengthwise
  • 1 head red leaf lettuce
  • 1/2cup basil leaves, shredded into large pieces


For the vinaigrette:

  • 1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 7 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, roughly chopped

 

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Pour enough water into the Premiere Slow Cooker so that it comes one inch up the side of the insert, and place in the steaming tray. Select the Steam Mode and set the timer for 1 hour.

  2. Once the water has begun to steam place the potatoes on the steaming tray, cover, and cook until they can be easily pierced with a fork or tip of a paring knife, about 25 minutes. (If the potatoes are too small and fall through the tray, place a layer of aluminum foil underneath the potatoes on the tray and poke just enough holes in the foil to allow steam to come through.)

  3. Once cooked, remove the potatoes from the Premiere Slow Cooker and place in a large bowl. Cover the bowl with aluminum foil to keep the potatoes warm. 

  4. Add more water to the pan if needed, then place the eggs on the steamer tray. Cover and steam for 11 minutes, then remove the eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. After cooling, lightly tap each egg multiple times on the counter to crack the shells, then peel. Rinse the peeled eggs in water to remove any remaining shell, then set aside. 

  5. Finally, place the green beans onto the steamer tray (repeating the aluminum foil trick if needed). Season the tuna with salt and pepper and place directly on top of the green beans. Cover and steam until the green beans are just tender and the tuna begins to lightly flake apart, about 6 to 8 minutes.  Remove the green beans and tuna from the pan and place in the bowl with the cooked potatoes. (If desired, place the green beans in a bowl of ice water for 2 to 3 minutes after cooking to preserve their bright green color, then transfer to the bowl with the warm potatoes and tuna). Cover the bowl again with aluminum foil to keep everything warm. 

  6. Prepare the vinaigrette by whisking together the Dijon mustard, garlic and red wine vinegar in a medium bowl. While whisking quickly and constantly, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the vinaigrette begins to thicken and emulsify.  Once it begins to thicken, the olive oil can be poured in faster, but continue whisking very quickly the entire time.  Whisk in the salt, pepper and tarragon, taste, and adjust seasoning to taste. 

  7. Uncover the bowl with all the warm ingredients. Very gently flake the tuna into large pieces.  Add the cherry tomatoes, red onion and olives to the bowl.  Pour in the vinaigrette and season the entire bowl with a few pinches of salt and pepper.  Using a wooden spoon, gently fold the ingredients in the bowl to lightly coat everything with the vinaigrette. 

  8. On one large serving plate, or individual salad plates, arrange the lettuce in an even layer. (Each serving should get at least 2 leaves of lettuce).  Spoon the salad mixture over the top of the greens, arranging neatly to ensure everyone gets an even amount of each ingredient. Gently hand tear the basil on top of the salad in small, bite sized pieces.

 

TIPS:

Appealing Idea – Leaving the skin on red potatoes cuts down on prep, while boosting nutrition. Win-win!

Fresh Catch – Tuna should smell like the ocean, not overly “fishy.” Flesh should be moist and firm, never dry or slimy.
