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:


Ingredients


Salad:

Dressing:

  • 5 tbsp lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives

  2. Heat potatoes according to package instructions along with herbs.
  3. In a small bowl mix together all ingredients for lemon dressing.
  4. On a large platter arrange mixed greens. Top with potatoes, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggs, green beans and fish. Drizzle with dressing and top with fresh basil. Enjoy.
