Layered tuna salad

It's quite a quick recipe and a variation of my long favourite tuna salad with grated cheese (gonna post it sometime).

Pretty easy to make and serves quite an amount of people (hope it will be enough for 5 people tonight).

Hope you like it!

Some facts:

My rating: 10/10 (I make it for every other party)
Prep time: 15-20 minutes - depends on how quick at chopping you are :)
Cook time: 7-9 minutes or as long as you boil your eggs
Total time: 30 - 40 minutes
Yield: one medium bowl or two soup plates

  • 1 can (130g) of tuna in water
  • 5 hard-boiled eggs
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup corn (canned)
  • 1 1/5  cup chopped chives
  • 1-2 teaspoons paprika or pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 7 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 8 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
  • to taste (sea)  salt and pepper

Cooking Directions
Boil eggs.
Divide the yolks form the whites. Set the yolks aside. Chop the whites finely.
Drain tuna and corn.
Chop onion and chives.
Take a glass bowl (to show of the layers) and put the ingredients in this order:
  1. half of egg whites,
  2. 1/3 garlic sauce
  3. onion, 
  4. corn,
  5. tuna
  6. 1/3 garlic sauce
  7. chives,
  8. garlic sauce,
  9. sprinkle of paprika or pepper
  10. rest of egg whites,
  11. sea salt to taste
  12. egg yolks pressed through a strainer or grated 
Garlic sauce:
  1. Mince 4 cloves of garlic and add the mayonnaise and Greek yoghurt. Add some cream to make it more runny.
  2. Add pepper and salt to taste. 
  3. Mix it thoroughly.

You may want to repeat the sequence to make more of it, just multiply the above amounts accordingly.

I've made two salads (out of this amount of ingredients) - one with paprika and the other with pepper and it turned out that the paprika version was tastier (that's what people said - I did add quite an amount (1 teaspoon)  of paprika and people liked it 'cause it was spicy)

And, if your recipes to show in the Google recipe search  and know shit about html code (like myself) you may find this site very useful. (The recipe you'll get need some further editing, but I think it's cool. :D)
