Ingredients

  • 100g mayonnaise (an olive oil one works best)

  • 2 anchovies from a can, 1 cut into thin slices
  • 80g tuna in oil (a good-quality one will make all the difference here), drained

Method

  1. Put the mayo, most of the capers, 1 whole anchovy, the tuna and most of the lemon juice into a food processor. Whizz until the tuna is completely mixed into the mayo. Season with pepper first, then taste, and add salt and more lemon juice, if you need to. If your sauce seems a bit thick, whizz in a drop of water. Can be made up to a day ahead.
  2. Spread the turkey and rocket over a large serving plate, then spoon over the dressing and scatter with the remaining capers and sliced anchovy. Serve straight away with crusty bread.

Peeps do try this tonnato sauce with cold meats! A wonderful buffet dish, especially at Christmas.I usually make it with boiled veal, very thinly sliced, but having read this recipe will definately be making it with any leftover turkey! I would also suggest a couple more anchovies to the sauce and if possible make your own mayo, a much more delicate taste.
