  1. Place egg in a saucepan, and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil, and immediately remove from heat. Cover, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, and peel. Cut eggs into quarters, and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes, and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Toss potatoes with eggs, bell peppers, onion, tomato, tuna, green olives, olive oil, and vinegar. Season to taste with salt. Refrigerate, and serve cold


  • Note
  • If you let it sit in the fridge overnight, the flavors will blend better, but add the tomato just before serving, so it doesn't end up mealy.

Fantastic combination of flavours. I love the flavour of cilantro so chopped up a few sprigs and added those in. Also added a finely chopped chilly as a personal preference. Used this salad as a...

Perfect. The Spaniards that I had the audacity to cook Spanish food for were delighted, too.

This was only okay for me.
