  • 200 g baby potatoes large ones cut in half
  • 1/2 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 50 g sundried tomatoes sliced into thin strips
  • 60 g spinach
  • 160 g tinned tuna in brine or spring water drained
  • 1/4 red onion thinly sliced
  • 80 g cucumber sliced

For the Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar


  • Preheat the oven to 220° C Fan. 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 crispy and brown.
  • 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.
  • 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!
