Who says potato salad needs to be heavy? Here, we've tossed mini potatoes with tuna, crispy Little Gem lettuce and a citrusy dressing for a light yet satisfying meal. Good-quality oil-packed tuna has more moisture and flavour than water-packed, but either will work.

Lemon-Caper Dressing:


Lemon-Caper Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, capers, mustard, honey, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in oil. Set aside.

In large bowl, gently toss together potatoes, lettuce, tuna, radicchio, shallots and dressing.
