Vitello Tonnato

This is a lighter version of the traditional Vitello Tonnato - no veal this time - and a perfectly simple addition to your Easter brunch with friends. 


For 4 people take:

  • 300g good tuna (jarred or canned).
  • 8 tbsp of a fine mayonnaise
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Approx. 25 capers, 20 of which are for decoration only
  • 3-4 tbsp whole milk
  • a dash of salt
  • 3-400g cold chicken or turkey breast



Mix 5 capers and all ingredients except the poultry in a bowl and carefully puree everything with a hand blender. Season briefly and add a little more salt or lemon juice if necessary.

Spread the chicken or turkey on a plate and cover everything generously with the tuna sauce. Garnish with the remaining capers and some lemon shavings and parsley.

Serve with fresh baguette and a glass of well chilled Gavi di Gavi.


Buon appetito !
