This tuna salad is a very special one indeed. It is made using the famous 'bonito del norte' tuna fish. Thick, meaty steaks of tuna which come from the North of Spain, supplied by the well respected Ortiz group.

We have combined the best tuna available with the finest and freshest Andalucian ingredients available to make a truly sumptuous salad.

How to make Tuna Salad

  • Wash all the salad ingredients

  • Add the remaining salad ingredients layering as you go.
  • Top the salad with the thick tuna steaks
