Deconstructed Salade Nicoise

By Sara Mae Danish | March 20, 2013

Salade Nicoise

There are several interpretations of the ever-popular nicoise salad, but it would not be a true nicoise without tuna, hard-boiled eggs, olives, and green beans. I beefed up the proteins and carbs to add substance, which allow this nicoise to be served as a main course for a light lunch or dinner.

In addition, we have cannellini beans, roasted potatoes, blistered tomatoes and mâche. Mâche is a lovely green salad that is a welcome departure from the bitterness of some other common lettuces. It has tender leaves and a crisp stem that pairs nicely with the bold flavors in the nicoise.

Going through the numerous steps to enhance the ingredients of the salad pays off as they’re paired with such a coveted piece of fish.
