La salade niçoise

Salade NiçoiseAfter two long hektic weeks, moving to a new house, i am back if you are wondering where i’ve been!

My first post from my new kitchen, eagerly presenting the french “salade Niçoise”, in the style of Nice, France.

Traditionally made with hard boiled eggs, boiled potatoes, olives, green beans, tuna, anchovies, tomato and onion presented on a bed of lettuce. Some sources exclude anchovies, add artichoke hearts or even presented without lettuce.

Salade NiçoiseTo serve 4 people you will need:

  • 3 canned tuna drained and flaked
  • 4 hard boiled eggs quartered
  • 8 small potato boiled and quartered
  • 12 cherry tomato halved
  • 150 g green beans steamed
  • around 24 black olives pitted
  • 1 big onion cut rondelles
  • 1 head romaine lettuce chopped into bite size pieces

Mix all together drizzle with vinaigrette or lemon olive oil dressing and serve!

Salade NiçoiseUsually this salad is served as an entree, but with some french baguette or croutons it can be a wholesome and sustaining dinner.

halloumi aubergine salad

I love aubergine especially when they are combined with halloumi. This salad is very simple and yummy.

Mix greens, grilled halloumi and grilled aubergine, 3 ingredients salad. Easy and fast to prepare it for a healthy dinner.

I like it with lemon and olive oil dressing. For a tastier lemon dressing add a pinch of brown sugar. It makes a difference.
