Ingredients

  • 4 ounces small red or white potatoes (about 4), scrubbed and halved

  • ½ cup Easy Anchovy Vinaigrette (see Associated Recipe)

  • 4 ounces fresh green beans (1 cup), trimmed

  • ¾ cup rinsed canned chickpeas

  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

  • 2 ½ ounces water-packed light tuna, drained

  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, quartered

  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Directions

  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add potatoes to the basket; cover and steam until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to a medium bowl. Add vinaigrette and toss gently with a flexible spatula to coat. Let the potatoes stand in the dressing for a minute or two. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes to a platter or divide between 2 plates.

  2. Add green beans to the steamer basket, cover and steam until tender-crisp, 4 to 6 minutes. Rinse under cold running water to stop the cooking.

  3. Arrange the green beans, chickpeas, tomatoes, tuna, and eggs on the platter (or plates). Drizzle the remaining dressing from the bowl over the salad. Garnish with parsley, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
