Thon En Salade (Swiss Tuna Salad Plate)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mash tuna with a fork.
  2. Add 3 tablespoons mayonnaise and mix well.
  3. Mound tuna mixture in the center of a serving platter.
  4. Surround tuna with lettuce, tomatoes, olives and eggs.
  5. Combine remaining mayonnaise with garlic and mix well.
  6. Strain.
  7. Mix in paprika.
  8. Pour mayonnaise mixture over tuna.
  9. Garnish with parsley.
