How to Make Tuna Nicoise with Honey Mustard Dressing?

Preheat the oven to 220 C Fan. Cut the bigger baby potatoes in half. Place the potatoes in a large bowl, drizzle with a tbsp of olive oil, add the mixed dried herbs and some salt. Shake the bowl to cover the potatoes in seasoning and tip onto a baking tray, spread out. Cook in the oven for 35-40 minutes, turning them once halfway through, until tender and browned.

In the meantime, make the dressing by mixing extra virgin olive oil, mustard, honey and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the eggs in boiling water for 6-7 minutes. Then immediately place in cold water for a few minutes. Peel the eggs and cut them in half. You should have a soft yolk. If you prefer hard-boiled eggs, cook them for longer.

Slice the sundried tomatoes into thin strips, thinly slice the red onion and cucumber. Divide the spinach between two plates. Scatter the capers, sundried tomatoes, red onion and cucumber on to. Add the tinned tuna in small piles on top.

Once potatoes are cooked, add them to the salad alongside the soft-boiled eggs and drizzle everything with honey-mustard dressing!
