Let's Cook!

Step 1

Bring a pan of water to the boil with a pinch of salt. Add the potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Add the green beans and cook for a further 3 minutes until tender. Drain and refresh under cold water, then drain well, pat dry and set aside.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine the onion slices, vinegar, sugar, salt and a pinch of pepper in a small bowl. Add 1 tbsp water and set aside for 15 minutes to quick-pickle. Drain well and put in the fridge.Put the eggs in a saucepan of gently boiling water and simmer for 7 minutes. Drain and plunge into cold water. Peel and cut in half

Step 3

Heat a frying pan over a high heat. Rub the tuna with the olive oil and season. Add to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, depending on the size of the steaks. Remove from the pan and rest for 5 minutes, then cut into thin slices, cover and chill until needed.

Step 4

For the dressing, whisk together red wine vinegar, wholegrain mustard, sugar and oil in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the potatoes, beans, tomatoes, pickled onions, anchovies, caper, olives, herbs and rocket leaves, eggs and flake over the tuna. Drizzle with the dressing and serve.
