Prep
Cook
Serves 2people
Ingredients
2
large eggs
1/2
cup frozen green beans
1
cup Sunblush tomatoes (in seasoned oil
1/2
cup sliced pitted black olives
1
x 8 oz jar or can of tuna
8
cups torn iceberg lettuces
4
tsp extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2
tsp sea salt flakes (or pinch table salt
1/2
tsp sugar
1
cup croutons
4-6
anchovy fillets (optional
1/2
cup fresh basil leaves
Directions
1.
Put the eggs in a pan full of cold water, bring to the boil and let bubble for 7 minutes. Three minutes in, add the frozen beans.
2.
Drain both the beans and eggs; let eggs sit in a bowl under running cold water, and hold the beans in a sieve just under the tap for a moment, too, so that eggs and beans stop cooking and the beans get cold.
3.
Tip the tomatoes and their oil into a bowl, add the olives and mix gently.
4.
Arrange the lettuce on a serving dish and then top with the tomato-olive mixture, saving their tasty juices in the bowl.
5.
Drain the tuna and place chunks of it along with the tomatoes and olives, then strew with the drained beans.
6.
Using the reserved juices left in the tomato mixture's bowl, make the dressing: whisk in the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and sugar and pour over the salad.
7.
Peel and quarter the almost but not quite hard-boiled eggs and add to the salad along with the croutons, anchovy fillets (if using) and basil leaves.
