After 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.
To 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!
Usually this salad is served as an entree, but with some french baguette or croutons it can be a wholesome and sustaining dinner.
Happy to be back, miss you 🙂

Introducing a fresh fruit to your simple leafy salad transforms it to a delicious and non ordinary dish.
Pomegranates, apples, oranges or strawberries pair well with cheese and nuts. Add any type of fruit you like, a handful nut of your choice or cheese and expect an interesting sweetness, that will go beautifully with the crunchiness of the vegetables.
it’s not just the delicious taste that will invite you to dig in but also the beautiful colors.
Here are 4 of my favorite salads that I prepare frequently:
Goat cheese and pomegranate salad
- Mix greens (rucola, frisée, boston)
- Goat cheese
Apple chevrette salad
- Red apple
- Chevrette cheese
Goat cheese and strawberries salad
- Mix greens (rucola, frisée, red romain)
- Goat cheese
Tangy crab salad
- Iceberg and romaine lettuce
- Shredded crab
These pretty salads could be served with balsamic or lemon mayo.
It’s a pleasure to the palate and the eye. Enjoy!
