Another treat for aperitivo: I’m sure you know vitello tonnato from your frequent pilgrimages to your trusted Italian restaurant. Of course you can do it at home… well: I admit I bought the veal at my trusted food store…
So we start w/ a lot of cooked veal as thinly sliced as possible…
…for the home-made sauce we need:
- canned tuna
- Greek yoghurt
- olive oil & lemon flavored oil
- hard-boiled eggs.
Grab an egg-whip & mix the Greek yoghurt w/ the oils. Add some salt & pepper to taste.
For the record:
You may substitute lemon flavoured oil for olive oil w/ some grated lemon zest.
Put everything (tuna, capers, anchovies, chopped eggs, yoghurt mess) in a high pot, grab your electric hand-held blender & start blending until everything is transformed into a thick creamy mess.
Arrange the veal on a plate & distribute the creamy mess overall the veal – or not: maybe it’s better that your guests do it by themselves.
Have a closer look at the texture of the sauce: It isn’t so smooth as you might expect. That’s because I used a simple handheld blender. (A real big food processor might be able to deliver a smoother sauce!)
…coming back to Italy & our stay at Rome & Eleonora Galasso’s cookbook on Roman cuisine.
There is also a recipe for vitello tonnato – of course it starts from the scratch w/ cooking the veal… I skipped this task by buying ready-to-eat veal slices at my trusted food store. (Belief me: it becomes a longish adventure when cooking the veal!)
…& here is Eleonora Galasso’s cookbook about Roman cuisine*:
…which lingered in my kitchen for some months!
Be sure to have some soft Italian bread on your table to wipe all the delicious sauce up!

That’s so delicious!
When having it in a restaurant you cannot imagine how easy & fast it is on the table! I’m sure I’ll do it for a lot of aperitivos.
