Salad Nicoise ? Tuna Salad

A classic, this tuna salad is so simple to make and it only takes minutes to put together once the eggs are cooked.

This salad is full of nutrients, it is super tasty and can be enjoyed at any time of the year.  It takes me back to a holiday in Greece I took with my auntie and uncle when I was a child.  We found a small beach bar where the Tuna salad was so good we ate it almost every day.
