Ingredients

  • 650g new potato , halved lengthways if large
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 175g can tuna
  • 200g green beans , halved
  • couple of handfuls of spinach , preferably baby leaves, tear if larger

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the potatoes in a pan of boiling water, bring back to the boil and simmer for 8-10 minutes until tender.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, mix the pesto and oil to make a dressing. Halve the tomatoes, drain and flake the tuna. Add the beans to the potatoes for the last 3 minutes of cooking time.

  • STEP 3

    Drain the potatoes and beans and tip into a salad bowl. Stir in the spinach so that it wilts a little in the warmth from the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Scatter the tomatoes and tuna on top, drizzle with the pesto and gently toss everything together.
