WHY THE NIÇOISE SHOULD BE YOUR NEW WEEK-NIGHT STAPLE

The Niçoise salad comes from—you guessed it—Nice and combines classic southern French ingredients like tuna, eggs, olives, and olive oil.


Since most Americans have eggs, a can of tuna, olives, and olive oil in their kitchen at any given time, this is the perfect salad to whip up when you feel like you have "nothing in the fridge."


Here's a version we love from the Modern Popper:
