Recipe; Tuna and Potato Salad

Simple tuna and potato salad

It’s near the end of the month and the fridge is getting empty. It’s always one of the times when you rely on what is left in the fridge and cupboard and you just have to go with whatever you’ve got. I know potato salad isn’t a new recipe everyone should go crazy about, but it is super simple, super tasty and is a filling salad.

This recipe only uses a few ingredients and took about thirty minutes to make. If had pre-cooked the potatoes, it would have taken me about 10 minutes to knock together.

It’s a dish that is light enough if you don’t fancy anything too heavy but satisfying enough to make you feel like you have eaten a good meal.
