Genoa Salad

Genoa Salad created by PaulaG

A tangy salad containing tuna, potatoes and green beans. I generally increase the vinegar a little to taste. I've never done so, but you could probably use canned potatoes for this. Preparation time does not include time to cook the vegetables. Cooking time is actually chilling time.

    Excellent and different tuna salad. Loved the flavor from the vinegar and olive oil added to the mayonnaise. Instead of slicing the potatoes, I diced them into small chunks. Used fresh green beans and green onions. Loved it - a definite do again recipe. Thanks for sharing it!

    I am with evelyn, this only made 2 servings. It was so easy to put together and made a nice dinner for me with leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I used a medium red skinned potato which I boiled until fork tender and so canned green beans. I added additional onion, because I love onion. The salad was served on top of fresh spinach leaves with toasted sourdough bread.

    Sorry to tell you this eebrag - but we got just 2 servings out of this delicious recipe. Either we're real, little piggies or you all have small appetites! I served the tuna salad on lettuce leaves with sourdough bread and it made a really tasty, effortless lunch. The addition of the potatoes and green beans really sets this recipe apart from traditional tuna salads, and I did also 'cheat' by mincing and adding a tiny garlic clove (didn't seem to hurt none). Everything else was spot on. Thanks eebrag.
