Thon En Salade (Swiss Tuna Salad Plate)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

Adapted from Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery. This somewhat resembles tuna Nicoise, but is much simpler and contains mayonnaise. I have changed the recipe from 7 ounce cans of tuna to 6 ounce cans, and reduced the amount of mayonnaise slightly. You can substitute curry powder for the paprika and capers for the parsley.

Last Saturday, I had a pouch of tuna and found this good salad in Chocolat's "Tasty and Pink" Cookbook, so i made it and my husband and i enjoyed it very much. Thanks Chocolatl. I tagged this recipe for THINK PINK RECIPE TAG EVENT - October 2011.
