Salade Nicoise Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings


  •     For the Vinaigrette:
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •     For the Salad:
  • 4 ounces canned tuna, solid, water packed, drained
  • 1 pound small red or new potatoes, scrubbed and halved
  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 pound small Roma tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 bunch of romaine lettuce, washed and chopped into bite­sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup olives (of your choice)
  • 2 ounces anchovies, chopped small (optional)
How to cook Salade Nicoise:
  • For the Vinaigrette: Mix all vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside to let the flavors meld while you prepare the salad.
  • For the Salad: Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes, or until tender when pricked with a fork. Drain the water. Cover the potatoes with cold water to let them cool slightly. Drain before using.
  • Place the green beans in a medium saucepan with 1 inch of water. Bring the water to a boil and steam the beans for 1­2 minutes, until they are brightly colored, but still crisp. Drain the boiling water and cover with beans with cold water to keep them from cooking further. Drain before using.
  • To construct the salad, place a bed of chopped romaine on your serving platter. Arrange the boiled potatoes, steamed green beans, eggs, tomatoes, olives, tuna, and anchovies over the romaine. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad just before serving.
  • Serve the Salade Nicoise with a crusty French baguette.
  • Bon appetit!
