Prepared in the microwave, this dinner comes together quickly. The mild dressing on the potatoes partners perfectly with the fresh flavor of the high protein tuna.

  • Sprinkle with green onions, garlic, and white wine vinegar. Cover dish with heavy-duty plastic wrap, and microwave on high about 5 minutes or until just tender.

  • Remove from microwave, and let sit covered for 5 minutes.

  • Carefully uncover potato slices, allowing steam to escape; drain and reserve liquid. Place potato slices in a bowl, and gently fold in the tuna.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the reserved potato liquid, olive oil, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Pour dressing over tuna-potato mixture, mix gently, sprinkle with parsley, and serve.

Cook's Notes:

Microwave times vary depending on the wattage of the microwave, so adjust cooking time accordingly.

I made this twice. The first time I made it my potatoes were way too crunchy despite a lot extra microwaving time. So I tried making it again and slicing the potatoes super thin and still had the problem of crunchy potatoes and sad looking green onions. In the future I will bake the dish in the oven instead of using the microwave. Crunchy potatoes aside the flavor of the dish was good and the leftovers were good cold. I recommend the recipe but just not the microwaving part. Read More

I personally loved this recipe! I made it today and ate it for lunch. It was delicious! I didn't have enough of the small potatoes so I scaled it down to just me. Now I am going to have to make this again for my husband because it was something that I know he is going to love! My only change was to squeeze some fresh lemon on the finished product. Delicious and refreshing! AND I got to use my microwave to make it! Thanks Lutzcat for the recipe! Read More

We thought this was a very easy way to add a side dish to a meal---or just for a meal on its own with a salad and some bread. The directions were pretty much right on. My potatoes were a little larger than what I thought was meant by small so I cut them a little narrower than called for but cooking time remained the same. Thanks so much for the recipe and the idea of this dish! Read More
