Ensaladilla Rusa

We talk about simplicity a lot - quality ingredients, prepared simply, will very often result in something delicious.  Perhaps more here than ever, it's important to use the best items you can. The ingredients are so humble that you need fresh vegetables, good organic eggs, the best mayonnaise (make your own if you're feeling up to it) and of course, the best tuna.


  • 10 - 12 medium Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas
  • 3/4 cup carrots, diced
  • 8 ounces of Ortiz tuna
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, yolks and whites separated and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper


Place potatoes in a saucepan filled with cold water. Add 1 tablespoon of salt to the water and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil.After 5 minutes, add the carrots and continue cooking. 2 minutes later, add the fresh peas, if using, and continue cooking. If using frozen, add them to the water briefly. When the vegetables are cooked, drain and spread on a sheet pan or plate to cool.

When the vegetables are cool, slice or quarter the potatoes. In a bowl, gently toss the vegetables with the tuna and mayonnaise. Then very gently fold in the eggs. Season with salt and pepper and serve on a bed of butter lettuce at room temperature.


Conservas Ortiz Ventresca


Off the coast of Spain in the Bay of Biscay, there appear every summer, huge shoals of white tuna. The weathered fishermen aboard the fishing boats of the Ortiz fleet use traditional methods to catch the plump Atlantic tuna. The flavor of the tuna is locked in by cooking and storing the exquisite fish in olive oil.

For the true tuna lover, the Ventresca just has to be tasted. From the fattest part of the center loin, this tuna is truly luxurious. The meat is silky and rich and the fish is left in long filets. You could indulge in the most fabulous tuna salad ever or simply serve a filet atop a salad. The Ventresca comes in a 4 ounce tin packed inside a box.

  1. Foie Gras of Tuna!

    Posted by Dolores Moe on 12th Jan 2013

    This is not what you think of when you think tuna! Don't even think about adding mayonnaise to this tuna -- you'll want to savor every bite as it comes from the tin.

  2. Heavenly

    Who would have thought a canned tuna could taste so incredibly delicious? If you never expect canned tuna to be anything more than mundane, you've got to try this - delicious by itself, in a salad, appetizer, or hors d'oeuvre. Truly fabulous.

  3. OMG!
