About the Recipe

Ingredients

Salad Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. (about 4) baby sweet potatoes, halved

  • 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 6 oz. (about 2 small handfuls) green beans

  • 4 cups baby spinach

  • 1- 5 ounce can wild tuna

  • 4 oz. (about 12) cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 10 kalamata olives

  • 1/4 cup walnuts


Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped parsley leaves

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 2 tsp. red wine vinegar

  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard

  • pinch of fresh ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Toss the potatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast potatoes on a baking sheet, cut sides down, for 15 minutes or until brown and tender.

  2. Bring 1 inch of salted water in a pot to a boil. Add the green beans to cook until bright green, about 1 minute. Immediately, drain the green beans and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain and set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients.

  4. Divide the spinach between large plates (if making for more than yourself). Add the tuna or lentils, roasted potatoes, green beans, cherry tomatoes, olives and walnuts. Top with dressing and dig in.
