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


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.
