This is one of those salads that are incredibly popular in Spanish households, not just in mine. The name translates literally as ‘country’ salad, so maybe it’s this outdoors-y name that makes us cook it for picnics and BBQs.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 eggs
400g new potatoes
1 teaspoon salt, + a pinch salt
2 tomatoes, Cut into wedges
1 red pepper, Chopped into 1-cm dice
1 green pepper, Chopped into 1-cm dice
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
100g green and black pitted olives
1 x 170g tin tuna in olive oil
3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped flatleaf parsley

Method

  1. Place the eggs and potatoes in a pan, add a pinch of salt and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over a high heat and after a total of 5 minutes, take out the eggs. Cool them down by running them under cold water and then peel and cut into quarters. The potatoes shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes to cook, but check them after 15 minutes by piercing them with a paring knife. If they feel soft inside, drain and set aside to cool down, then cut in half and place in a big salad bowl.
  2. Add the tomato wedges, diced peppers, sliced red onion and olives to the bowl and mix together with all the ingredients. Open the tin of tuna and use the fishy olive oil from the tin to dress the salad, as well as adding a generous amount of salt, the sherry vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, and give it all a really good stir.
  3. Sprinkle the finely chopped parsley and egg quarters over the top and serve.
