Salade Niçoise


A French classic: Salade Niçoise. Often on the menu in neighborhood restaurants in Paris.

For a potluck that I'm about to go to, I made a vegetarian version; that is, I omitted the tuna and anchovies that are part of the original. I follow Julia Child and use French potato salad with olive oil (pommes à l'huile), black olives, tomatoes, green beans, and hard-boiled eggs. I improvised a tiny bit and added a few lettuce leaves and some fresh dill and spring onions.

As with every French dish, the quality of ingredients makes the dish. I've written about it before: one of my favorites! I thought this post would fit in with the blogging theme of Paris in July.
