Servings Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 oz. turnip or celery root
  • 5 oz. fresh green beans
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 finely chopped garlic cloves (optional)
  • 5 oz. baby gem lettuce or Romaine lettuce

  • 1 minced garlic clove (optional)


  1. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing using a mixer or an immersion blender until fully combined and creamy. Set aside.
  2. Boil the eggs the way you like them, soft or hard boiled. Place them immediately in ice-cold water when they are done to make them easier to peel. Cut them into wedges.
  3. Wash and peel the turnips. Cut them in half-inch pieces. Wash and trim the green beans and parboil both for 5 minutes in lightly salted water. Use separate pans. Rinse in cold water when done.
  4. Place a skillet on medium high heat and fry the green beans in butter or olive oil. Add finely chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place lettuce on a serving plate or on individual plates. Add tomatoes, onion, drained tuna, eggs, beans, olives and turnip. Serve with dressing on the side.
  6. Enjoy!
