Salade Nicoise

This delicious salad is usually served for lunch with a few slices of baguette.  Traditionally it would have tuna or anchovies but obviously as you can see those ingredients are not missed !

Vinaigrette Dressing

1/2 cup olive oil

1/8 – 1/4 cup white wine or apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp Dijon mustard

salt & pepper

Wisk all the above together.

Tear up some butter lettuce and toss in bowl with appropriate amount of dressing.

Assemble on a plate :

sliced radish

sliced hard boiled egg

sliced tomato

sliced bell pepper

cubed boiled potato (peeled)

thinly sliced onion

par boiled string beans

nicoise olives

capers

You can arrange these ingredients in a large salad bowl starting with the tossed lettuce and adding carefully the rest.  Or on a plate as I have done.  Drizzle vinaigrette on top and serve.

About sosatisfying

I grew up a vegetarian in So Cal. I lived for quite a few years in NYC and now I live in Atlanta, GA. I guess these various regions have had an affect on my cooking/eating style. Mexican food is certainly my comfort food - the more down home the better. Italian is my daily bread. And I love greens, grits and anything made better with Vidalia onions.
