“A delicious tuna salad from the South of France. It's highlights are fresh local ingredients, such as tomatoes, anchovies and black olives. Great served with fresh french bread on the side or as a filling for a crusty baguette. This is a fine basic recipe but feel free to spice it up with some fresh herbs as well.”
