How to make Albacore Tuna Red Potato Salad

Steam red potatoes (mine took about 30 minutes) and set aside to cool.

In a food processor, add garlic, parsley, basil, thyme, capers,
almonds (or pine nuts) and a bit of olive oil (not all). Pulse until
chopped and then add remaining olive oil and lemon juice. Pulse until
desired pesto consistency comes together. Add salt and pepper. In a
large bowl, combine tuna, beans, cooled potatoes and pesto. Toss and
add more salt/pepper if needed. This is great at room temperature or
chilled and can be made ahead 4 hours.
