Authentic Nicoise Salad

There are many versions of the Nicoise Salad, but this recipe is a delicious tribute to the fresh ingredients that make the famous salad from Nice so iconic.

The most famous French salad is delightfully easy to prepare. The classic Nicoise salad has many different recipes but as a French chef, it’s not a Nicoise salad unless it includes anchovies, tuna, olives, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, green beans, raw bell peppers and a mix of young salad. Permeating with all these fresh ingredients, this iconic dish is perfect on a hot summer’s day or when you want to satisfy your craving for an incredible blend of fresh & healthy ingredients.
