The dressing for this simple, colourful salad has a sweet-sour flavour, which perfectly complements the lightly cooked courgette, tuna, tomatoes and al dente pasta. Mini pitta bread is good served alongside, to mop up the dressing.

8 people made this

IngredientsServes: 4

  • 250g (9 oz) fusilli pasta
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 courgettes, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp red pesto sauce
  • 1 tbsp white or red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 6 tomatoes, skinned, halved and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 can tuna in brine, about 200g, drained and roughly flaked
  • 6 black olives, stoned and halved
  • fresh flat-leaf parsley to garnish (optional)

MethodPrep:25min ›Ready in:25min

  1. Cook the pasta in boiling water for 10–12 minutes, or according to the packet instructions, until al dente. Drain well, rinse with cold water and drain again very thoroughly.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat half the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and garlic, and fry for 3 minutes, stirring often. Add the remaining oil and the courgettes and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the sugar, red pesto, vinegar and capers to the onion and courgettes. Heat for a few seconds, stirring until the ingredients have combined to form a dressing. Stir in the tomatoes, then transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and set aside to cool.
  4. Add the drained pasta to the bowl, then gently mix in the tuna fish and black olives. Divide among 4 plates or transfer to a large serving bowl. Serve garnished with some flat-leaf parsley leaves, if liked.

Some more ideas

To increase the fibre content and make a more substantial meal, add 1 can borlotti beans, about 400 g, drained, with the pasta. Omit the tuna for a vegetarian dish. * Canned anchovies can be used instead of tuna. Use the oil from 1 can, about 50 g, to cook the ingredients in step 1. * Use 225 g (8 oz) small patty pan squash instead of courgettes. Trim their tops and bases, then slice them in half.

Plus points

Using tuna canned in water or brine, rather than in oil, keeps the fat content of the dish low. * Tomatoes and courgettes together ensure that this simple salad provides an excellent supply of vitamin C.

Each serving provides

Excellent source of selenium, vitamin C. Good source of vitamin A. Useful source of copper, folate, niacin, potassium, vitamin B1, vitamin E.

15 Salads to Eat This Summer

Cannellini beans, Tuna and Pasta Salad

The tasty pairing of tuna and beans in a salad is known in the Italian kitchen, and it is one of my favorites. As I’m also a fan of tuna-pasta salad, I’ve decided to combine both, as you can see in the following version.
Instead of using salad dressing, and in order to add a more complex and interesting texture to the salad, I processed some of the beans, along with parsley and peppadew peppers, to a creamy paste/dressing. This worked very well, and gave the salad wonderful creaminess, without using a large amount of oil.
To add even more flavors and textures, chopped celery and lemon were also added to the mixture, and the result is this tasty, highly nutritious salad, which is just perfect for brunch on a summer day. Try it and enjoy.

Notes:
* Peppadew are pickled peppers, also known as sweet piquant pepper. They are about the size of a cherry tomato, and have a mild sweet and spicy flavor. They are available in specialty stores or online.

Makes: 4-6
Prep time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
1 cup elbow macaroni pasta
1 cup picked parsley
1 can (15oz/425 grams) cannellini beans, drained
5 Peppadew pickled peppers (see notes)
2 Tbs olive oil
2 scallions, roughly chopped
1 can (7oz/200 grams) albacore tuna in water, drained
2 tsp salt
½ tsp freshly ground four peppers mix
2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
½ cup finely chopped celery (tender sticks from the center)
¼ lemon, finely chopped, peel included

1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box. Drain and let cool a bit.
2. Place the parsley in a small food processor, fitted with the metal blade. Add a third of the beans, the peppadew peppers, and the oil, and process to a creamy paste.

3. In a medium bowl, mix the scallions with the remaining beans. Add the beans-parsley paste and the tuna, and mix, trying to keep fairly large chunks of tuna in. Add the salt, pepper and lemon juice and mix lightly.

4. Add the cooked pasta, celery and chopped lemon, and mix gently. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Serve at room temperature.

Catfish Sauce Piquante served over Giant Jalapeno Corn Muffins (Emeril Lagasse)

Russian dressing is made with a mayonnaise ketchup base, often livened up with pickle relish, Worcestershire sauce, prepared horseradish, and lemon juice and seasoned with paprika, onion powder, or mustard powder. It’s spicier and less sweet than Thousand Island, with a more complex, nuanced je ne sais quoi.

Typically piquant, it is today characteristically made of a blend of mayonnaise and ketchup complemented with such additional ingredients as horseradish, pimentos, chives, and spices.


Simmer Them Down

When you have a bumper crop of both corn and peppers, stir them into a shrimp maque choux, or Cajun succotash. The key to its creamy broth is corn milk, scraped from the cobs after the kernels are cut off. Then experiment with different mild-to-medium-spicy peppers. Add padrons, which are like Spanish shishitos, small and ranging in heat or toss in sweet habaneros, which look just like the traditional four-alarm variety but are surprisingly fruity. (This crossbreed can be found in some farmers’ markets.) When you improvise this way, the dish tastes new every time.


Are onigiri gluten-free?

Our vegan onigiri are gluten-free, like most others. But if you suffer from gluten allergies, you should pay extra care as there are some subtle exceptions. Let&aposs take a look at some of them.

Soy sauce is a common ingredient in onigiri fillings. But did you know the traditional soy sauce is not gluten-free? Not many do. Pay particular attention to this ingredient next time you order onigiri, especially at street food stalls. You should ask the person serving you if the soy sauce they used is gluten-free. If they give you a vague answer, and you are allergic to gluten, you better walk away.

You should also be wary of Mayonnaise. Although the majority of mayo brands are gluten-free, there are some exceptions. If your onigiri filling comes with this sauce, be safe and ask whether it&aposs suitable for people with gluten intolerance.

Finally, take a good look at the ingredients used in vegan onigiri. Many vegan substitutes, especially mass-produced ones, use a variety of ingredients to emulate the original food successfully. Among these you may have flours and starches, often used to bind the other ingredients together. So next time you are buying "vegan chorizo" onigiri, or whatever, give that label a good read.


It’s not hard to see how anchovies may be perceived as unappetizing, but these piquant flavored fillets add an oceanic layer of saltiness whose taste can only be described as “fish bacon.” This picnic pasta salad takes advantage of this extremely flavorful ingredient, along with sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, and fresh Italian parsley.
