It’s a simple composition: crisp haricots verts, capers, celery, baby potatoes and Italian tuna tossed with a generous drizzle of fresh lemon juice. Yet uncomplicated as it may seem, Scopa Italian Roots’ Sicilian tuna salad makes for an elegant appetizer, first course or simple dinner. The dish comes together in minutes, perfect whether you’re planning for a busy weeknight or a leisurely weekend. Susan from Manhattan Beach never fails to order a double portion when she’s at the restaurant, causing her to “forgo many other tasty dishes on Scopa’s menu.”
Susan, the Venice restaurant was happy to share the recipe so you can enjoy the salad at home whenever the craving hits.
