  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a bowl, including the juice from the tomatoes.
  2. Finely chop the egg whites, reserving the yolks.
  3. Crumble the tuna and add to the vegetables with the egg whites.
  4. 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).
  5. Add to the vegetables and allow to chill in the fridge.

Serving suggestions

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.
