Ingredients

  • 250 grams of paste.
  • 250 grams of mozzarella pearls.
  • 2 large tuna cans.
  • 150 grams of cherry tomatoes.
  • Fresh basil.
  • Black olives.
  • Extra virgin olive oil, to taste.
  • Modena vinegar or other type, to taste.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

Elaboration

  1. Put the pasta to boil. In a pot, plenty of water over high heat. Once the water has boiled, a good handful of salt and the pasta will be put in, which will be allowed to boil until the consistency that we prefer is obtained. Once boiled, strain and cool.

  2. Mix the ingredients. We cut the tomatoes and the olives trying to be more or less of the same form. Crumble the tuna and incorporate all these ingredients along with the pearls of mozzarella in a bowl.

  3. Incorporate the basil leaves. For this, we can grind it, or leave the whole leaves. If we choose to shred the leaves, it would be the time to incorporate the oil and vinegar that we are going to use in the salad in the crusher.

  4. Serve the salad cold and juicy.

Optional: add 1 clove of garlic, very chopped.
