Get ready for the perfect healthy summer dish, Tuna Nicoise Spring Rolls. All the deliciousness of a tuna Nicoise salad wrapped up in a tasty Spring Roll and served with a Dijon-olive dipping sauce. Perfect for a light lunch, or as a refreshing appetizer at your next BBQ.
Boil potatoes in well salted water for 7 minutes or until tender. In the final 2 minutes of cooking add green beans to the pot and cook for 1 1/2 -2 minutes or until they turn bright green. Immediately submerge potatoes and green beans in an ice bath.
Slice hard-boiled eggs, potatoes (thinly), and tomatoes. Set up your "rolling" station with all veggies, tuna, and eggs.
Dijon Olive Dipping Sauce
In the bowl of a food processor combine olives, garlic, dijon, salt, and pepper. Pulse until well chopped. Slowly add olive oil and pulse until well combined. Add enough water (I used 2 tbsp) to reach a thinner dippable consistency
Prepare Spring Rolls
Prepare a wrapping station with a bowl of warm water, a flour sack or clean dish towel, and a large piece of parchment paper. Soak spring roll wrapper in warm water until soft (about 30 seconds). Gently pull out of the water and lightly dry on a towel, carefully transfer to the parchment paper.
Place your ingredients just below the center of the spring roll: one lettuce leaf, a few green beans, 2 slices of bell pepper, 3 slices of potato, a few slices of egg, tomato, blue harbor tuna, and a few sprigs of fresh tarragon.
Gently roll the wrapper over your ingredients, folding in the sides and then rolling away from you until fully enclosed. We call spring rolls - alien pods - that's what it will look like. A perfect little alien pod filled with glorious amazing ingredients!
Repeat until all rolls are completed.
Serve with dipping sauce.
There are quite a few varieties of spring roll wrappers to choose from, I've used brown rice, brown rice with green tea, or traditional white rice spring roll wrappers.
Make sure to use the larger size spring roll wrappers (8")
