This mayo-free potato salad was inspired by the classic salade Niçoise. It combines big, bold Mediterranean ingredients and uses a generous amount of capers to add pops of savory, briny flavor in every forkful (you’ll need two 4-ounce jars to obtain the ½ cup capers called for in the recipe). The optional tuna makes the salad hearty enough to serve as a light main, especially if it’s served on top of a bed of greens, but if you like, you can omit the tuna.

Tip

Don’t allow the potatoes to cool before tossing them with the dressing. They more readily absorb seasonings when they’re hot. Don’t skip the tablespoon of caper brine. The unique flavor is a welcome addition to this salad.
