Perfect Nicoise Salad

Canned tuna isn’t just for sandwiches slathered in mayonnaise. This French nicoise salad is nutrient packed and crazy delicious. Could a summer dish be any more perfect?

 

RECIPE OVERVIEW


 

Have all your salad ingredients prepared.

Nicoise Ingredients

Lightly season lettuce with salt & fresh black pepper.

Tip: By having ingredients all ready to go, you are able to assemble your salad quickly after tossing to prevent from the lettuce leaves from wilting before eating/serving.

 


For the dressing I like using a simple French vinaigrette. This French vinaigrette recipe by David Lebovitz, it my go to salad dressing.

Toss lettuce in dressing & plate.  Separately toss green beans & potatoes in reserve dressing.  Neatly arrange the ingredients on top of the lettuce.
