Low Carbohydrate Salad Nicoise

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Good Looking Cooking

This is a lovely adaptation of Nicoise Salad from a low carb recipe book I have.The recipe calls for 175g grilled tuna steak, however I used a tin of Ocean Rise Yellow Fin Tuna Slices in olive oil with chilli (sold by Aldi in OZ). Using a tuna in olive oil enables you to use the oil from the can to make a lovely spicy salad dressing. My DH and I both enjoyed this very much and it is so quick and easy to make and low carb to boot! Note: I made this again with other tinned tuna and I have to admit that the results are much better using the olive oil that the tuna has been canned in.

Delicious and classic! I made as directed leaving out the anchovies when serving my teenager. Thanks, Good Looking Cooking! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
