Ingredients

1 can (85 g )
Clover Leaf Solid Light Tuna in Olive Oil
1 can (85 g)
Clover Leaf Flaked Light Tuna - Lemon & Pepper
1/3 cup
mayonnaise
2 tbsp
capers
½ lb. (226 g)
roast beef, thinly sliced (approx. 24 slices)

Preparation

  1. Mix tuna and mayonnaise. Fold in capers. Cover and refrigerate up to overnight.
  2. When ready to assemble, place sliced beef in a shallow, single-serve dish.
  3. Measure approx. 2½ - 3 tsps of the tuna mixture on top of each slice to make approx. 24 servings.
  4. Serve immediately.

Tip: You can also serve the tuna mixture as a dip, with crudité or crackers.

Note
The original recipe, Vitello Tonnato, uses veal instead of beef and was created in the northern part of Italy, mixing traditional agricultural and marine cultures. This dish has many variants, so we created this simple and quick version, in keeping with the focus on your convenience and the ‘Take 5’ theme. We hope you like it.
