Potato Salad with Caramelized Onion, Gherkins and Smoked Tuna

Easy different and playful.

1. Potatoes: Baby, washed and cut in half, or normal potatoes peeled and cut in bites of roughly 4 * 4 cm. Place in a pot with cold water. Bring to the boil and count roughly 10 minutes. You want them properly cooked but not falling apart. When ready, drain and dress them while still hot.

2. Dressing: It is basically a mustard vinaigrette with balsamic vinegar., Wholegrain mustard will work great here. Indicative quantities: 1 tbs mustard. 2 tbs vinegar (I prefer apple cider), 1 tbs balsamic vinegar, ½ tsp salt. Mix well and add olive oil three times the

3. Caramelized Onion (for 2 big red onions, cut in 3 cm strips): Sautee in a pan on high heat and as soon as they start to slightly burn and soften add 1 tbs brown sugar, and deglaze with 2 tbs balsamic vinegar. Turn heat way down, cover with lid and let them cook very slowly, taking care not too dry them out, which means you will be adding water regularly, starting after the first 2 minutes and checking every 10. The whole process should take about an hour.

. Other ingredients: Finely cut gherkins, capers, and smoked tuna. Mix well in a bowl with the dressed potatoes and the onion, garnish with chives and serve.
