- 6 plum tomatoes, peeled and diced (keep the juice)
- ½ red pepper, finely diced
- 1 green pepper, finely diced
- 1 cucumber, finely diced
- 1 giant spring onion, finely diced - see Variations below.
- 2 hard boiled eggs
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 can of tuna in oil
- Olive oil
- Mix the first 5 ingredients in a bowl, including the juice from the tomatoes.
- Finely chop the egg whites, reserving the yolks.
- Crumble the tuna and add to the vegetables with the egg whites.
- Using a blender or pestle and mortar, combine the egg yolks, garlic, olive oil, vinegar and salt to make a vinaigrette. (Use about 1 part vinegar to 3 parts oil).
- Add to the vegetables and allow to chill in the fridge.
Serve with toast
If you are a vegetarian, simply leave out the tuna. 'Cebollas tiernas' are giant spring onions, which are rarely seen in the UK, although they are widely available in Spain. I would suggest that you use, perhaps, two or three of the largest you can find.
