Recipe 7 (Goal # 33) -Tuna Potato Salad with Peas and Paprika Aioli

My friend Hayley claims she doesn't like to cook, I think this is a lie because she is a wonderful baker. She complained that my recipes were too hard and took to much time. For her I decided to prepare this REALLY easy potato salad, that can stand on its own or be a wonderful side for a pot luck or large dinner. 

The best part about this salad is that it basically has all your food groups in one dish, protein, carbs and veggies and you can store it in the fridge for a couple of days!

Ingredients: (enough for 4)

2 cans of tuna - preferably in oil ( I used the one seasoned with jalapenos) 
3 eggs
300 g of Sweet Peas - a small bag
500 g of Ruby Little Gems Red Mini Potatoes - about 15 little potatoes or a small bag
2 tbsp of light mayonnaise
1 tsp of olive oil
1 tsp of Smoked Spanish Paprika
1 tsp of garlic powder

Cut the mini potatoes in half. Boil the potatoes with a pinch of salt, when the potatoes are about to be done throw in the peas in the same pot and cook for about 5 min. Drain the potatoes and peas and throw them in a large bowl. Drain the tuna and add it to the potatoes and peas, making sure the pieces of tuna are not too large. 

At the same time that you started to boil the potatoes in a different pot boil the eggs, leave them for enough to ensure they are hard boiled. 

In a small bowl put two generous tbsp of light mayonnaise, and paprika, garlic powder and a little olive oil to make it smoother. Taste it, and play with the ingredients until its perfect!
