2 lbs. BCfresh Red Nugget Potatoes 1 kg
1 BC red bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced into julienne strips
4 whole BC green onions, diagonally sliced
1 stalk BC celery, thinly diagonally sliced

1/2 cup buttermilk 125 g
1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh chives 15 mL
1/4 tsp. finely grated lemon peel 1 mL
1 tsp. Dijon mustard 5 mL
Pinch of salt
Freshly ground white pepper

6.5 oz. chunk light tuna packed in water, drained 184 g


Scrub unpeeled potatoes, cutting larger ones into halves. Place in a large saucepan with 1/2″ (1 cm) water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover and gently steam for about 15 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender when pierced with a fork. Strain, return to the burner and shake briefly to dry. Set aside to briefly cool.

Meanwhile, prepare dressing combining ingredients in a large serving dish. Stir to blend. Add partially cooled potatoes along with red pepper strips, green onions and celery. Toss together to evenly coat with dressing. Refrigerate to completely cool. Add chunks of drained, chunk light tuna and additional gratings of fresh pepper before serving, if you wish.

Makes 4 servings.
