2 1/2 tbsp olive oil

salt & pepper to taste

For the tomato topping:

100 g cherry tomatoes

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp Mazzetti Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

  • Step 1.

For the olive tapenade, mix the olives with oil in a blender to a creamy mixture. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

  • Step 2.

For the Tomato Salsa, wash the tomatoes, dry and quarter. Wash the parsley, shake dry and finely chop. Peel the garlic and chop finely. Mix tomatoes, parsley and garlic in a bowl with oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Now for the tonnato. Boil the eggs for 7 minutes. Drain and cool, then peel.

While the eggs cook, drain the tuna, anchovies and capers. In a frying pan, heat the oil and fry the tuna, anchovies and capers briefly. Pour into a bowl and add the eggs before blending with a stick blender. Add the oil and stock as needed until the correct consistency is achieved. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
