Tuna Red Pepper Salad

Pair with: Manzanilla


Cooking time: 30 min

This brightly coloured salad and fresh vibrant - exactly like a Manzanilla which is why it pairs together so beautifully. The salty tang of the capers working with the gentle acidity of the Sherry vinegar alongside the sweetness of the red peppers makes this a tricky dish to find the perfect wine partner but with Manzanilla, you have it!


Tuna Red Pepper Salad

Mix everything together in a bowl, leaving the eggs till last so that they don't break up too much. Leave to allow flavours to infuse. It can be made the previous day and kept in the fridge but should always be eaten at room temperature.
