How to prepare the recipe for tuna potatoes

  1. First, peel the potatoes and cut them into pieces of 1.5 cm on each side. Put them in a pot with salted water and cook, calculating 10-15 minutes from boiling. They are ready when they will be yielding if pricked with a fork.
  2. In the meantime, combine the drained tuna , the chopped chives and the mayonnaise in a bowl. Mix everything well.
  3. Then drain the potatoes and cool them under running water if you are in a hurry. Add them to the tuna sauce and mix gently. Let it rest in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
