It holds all of the favorite ingredients especially tuna. The preparation method is not too complicated either. Inspired by French cuisine, this salad makes an amazing summer dish. You can add more garden vegetables like corn, blanched broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus to make it delightful and more nutritious!

How to make Salad Nicoise

  • To a large pot, add water and salt. Bring to boil.
  • Add potatoes, and let it cook until tender and yet little firm.
  • Allow it to cook for at least 15 minutes. Drain and cool.
  • In a large bowl, mix the potatoes, parsley, olives, onion, tuna and green beans.
  • Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  • In a large bowl, add greens with vinaigrette and top with chilled potato mixture.
  • Garnish with eggs, tomatoes, capers, and anchovies.

TIP: The French way of preparing the same recipe is by just combining all of the ingredients excluding the greens, and letting them marinate in a batch of dressing.
