  1. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing using a mixer or an immersion blender until fully combined and creamy. Set aside.

  3. Wash and peel the turnips. Cut them in half-inch pieces. Wash and trim the green beans and parboil both for 5 minutes in lightly salted water. Use separate pans. Rinse in cold water when done.
  4. Place a skillet on medium high heat and fry the green beans in butter or olive oil. Add finely chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place lettuce on a serving plate or on individual plates. Add tomatoes, onion, drained tuna, eggs, beans, olives and turnip. Serve with dressing on the side.

    Made this last night. Much nicer than the nicoise salad I usually make. Everyone loved the dressing and have some leftover which I will serve with fish tonight. Thank you for the great recipes/ideas.

    What can I substitute for turnip? Don't like the flavour!

    OM Goodness! Made this tonight and it was amazing! I don't even like turnips....well I didn't think I did! I didn't change a thing and this was so yummy! Definitely a keeper.

    Could you please tell us how big your can of tuna is? They may be a standard size in Sweden or the US, but in Australia there are several different sizes! Makes a differences for macros.

    Look for something around 3oz as this is designed to make 2 servings.

    The standard tuna can in the U.S. is 5 oz - 4 oz drained, or 113 grams. It makes two servings of two ounces each. There is a problem with this recipe - the protein content does not add up. The nutrition data shows 34 gr protein for one serving of the salad. Two ounces of tuna would be 13 grams of protein, plus 6 grams from one egg. That totals to 19 grams of protein. A full can of tuna per person plus one egg would total 34 grams. Maybe in Sweden a larger size can is common, but still doesn't match Kristin's comment.

    The nutrition information is per serving for the entire recipe, so it also includes the protein for all the other applicable ingredients, as well.
