TAP salad (Tuna avocado & potato)

Carole's Chatter: TAP salad

The combination of tuna, avocado and potato worked well in this salad.  All I did was mix a bunch of ingredients together with a dressing.

Ingredients  in the salad:

Can of tuna (drained)
Some chunks of cooked potato (leftovers)
Capers & gherkins – roughly chopped
Small bit of chopped fresh red chilli
5 green olives (chopped) – use more if you like them
1/3 small cucumber chopped
The green part of a spring onion (scallion) chopped
1/3 of a courgette (zucchini) – chopped raw
An avocado – spoon curled into the salad with a teaspoon

Ingredients in the Dressing:

Crème fraiche/mayonnaise/lemon juice
Horseradish sauce – 1 teaspoon or more if you like it spicy
Sherry vinegar – just a splash
Herbs – dill, parsley, thyme and basil – chopped
Salt and white pepper

I reserved a few thyme flowers and a bit of chilli to use as garnish.


  1. Wow, that looks like my kind of salad!

  2. I like that you just whipped this together with what you have. The dressing sounds good--I love horseradish.

  3. I just love Tuna Salad this looks so good! Hope you had a great Valentine weekend and thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
