Tuna and potato salad -- Help?

Pharah | Jul 13, 2010 11:09 AM

Hi everyone,

I was at my company picnic last week and my boss' mother brought a delicious salad that I would like to try making myself at home. I've been searching on here and Google and I haven't been able to find anything similar.

The ingredients were tuna, potatoes, chickpeas, parsley, onion, sliced egg, and green olives. It was in a light olive oil-based dressing, and was meant to be mixed with mayonnaise and lime/lemon to be squeezed on top. I believe his family are Portuguese, if that helps.

It seems pretty easy to me, but I would still really appreciate a recipe or any other tips anyone has, especially the dressing since the ingredients are pretty straightforward, but other than olive oil I'm not sure what else was in the dressing.

Could it just be his mum's own variation on the Portuguese tuna salad with chickpeas I can find easily?

I have considered asking my boss if he could give me the recipe, but I don't see him often and he's usually very busy when I do see him, so I haven't asked him yet. Also I was hoping to make this for dinner tonight, but that depends on if anyone can help me!
