Andalusian Tuna Salad

Andalusian Tuna Salad
Ahhh…a soothing breeze off the Mediteranean as you take refuge from the warm sun along Spain’s southern coast. When having a leisurely lunch in the tourist towns of the Costa del Sol you’ll be tempted by the wide variety of seafood. While there are often lots of fried foods on the menu, you can usually be sure to find a nice seafood salad. One of my favourites is the Russian Salad made with tuna and potato. For a litter lighter fare, I’ve subtracted the potatoes but kept all the good stuff in this recipe. This would pair nicely with a chilled Spanish rose wine.
