Ensalada de Papa con Atun (Potato and Tuna Salad)

Ensalada de Papa y Atun

Looking for a good summer salad recipe? I love the colors and flavors in this salad! The mix of potato, tuna, green beans, onions, lettuce and tomatoes make this salad the perfect summer lunch. If you want a vegetarian version, just omit the tuna.

Buen provecho!
