    Manami's Note:

    Courtesy of "The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook," copyright 1999. I usually make this when my close friends come to spend the afternoon, and we either play cards or scrabble. I must say that I have tweaked it here and there adjusting it to our personal preferences. This recipe reminds me of Ina Garten, because it is simple, elegant, done with class and in excellent taste.

    TUNA AND THE SALAD

    VINAIGRETTE

    FRENCH POTATO SALAD

    Directions:

    1. 1
      MAKE THE FRENCH POTATO SALAD:.
    2. 2
      Drop the white and red potatoes into a large pot of boiling salted water and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, until they are just cooked through.
    3. 3
      Drain in a colander and place a terry-cloth kitchen towel over the potatoes to allow them to steam for 10 more minutes.
    4. 4
      AS soon as you can handle them, cut in 1/2 (quarters if the potatoes are larger)and place in a medium bowl.
    5. 5
      Toss gently with the wine and chicken stock.
    6. 6
      Allow the liquids to soak into the warm potatoes before proceeding.
    7. 7
      MAKE THE VINAIGRETTE:.
    8. 8
      Combine the vinegar, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and slowly whisk in the olive oil to make an emulsion.
    9. 9
      Add vinaigrette to potatoes.
    10. 10
      Add scallions, dill, parsley, basil or Italian seasoning, 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and stir until just combined.
    11. 11
      Serve warm or at room temperature.
    12. 12
      GRILL THE TUNA AND PREPARE THE PLATTER:.
    13. 13
      To grill the tuna, get a charcoal or stovetop cast iron grill very hot.
    14. 14
      Brush the fish with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    15. 15
      Grill each side for only 1-1/2 to 2 minutes.
    16. 16
      The center should be raw, like sushi, or the tuna will be tough and dry.
    17. 17
      Arrange the tuna, haricots verts, potato salad, tomatoes, eggs, olives, watercress, capers and anchovies, on a large flat platter, if used, or you can serve each person individually.

      MAKE THE VINAIGRETTE:.
    19. 19
      Combine the vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper.
    20. 20
      Slowly whisk in the olive oil to make an emulsion.
    21. 21
      Drizzle some over the fish and vegetables and serve the rest in a pitcher on the side.
