Tonnato is a classic Italian dish, usually made
with veal but just as good with other delicate
meats. The sauce is very savoury and piquant
and you’ll have some left over, so serve it in a
dish for people to help themselves to more.
Put the mayo, most of the capers, 1 whole
anchovy, the tuna and most of the lemon
juice into a food processor. Whizz until the
tuna is completely mixed into the mayo.
Season with pepper first, then taste, and add
salt and more lemon juice, if you need to. If
your sauce seems a bit thick, whizz in a drop
of water. Can be made up to a day ahead.
Spread the turkey and rocket over a large
serving plate, then spoon over the dressing
and scatter with the remaining capers and
sliced anchovy. Serve straight away with
