Salade Niçoise

Total time: 25 minutes
     This is a classic, French summer salad, served at sidewalk cafes all over the country for lunch and light suppers.  Pour a glass of Rosé, settle into your chair, and enjoy...  Maybe while watching the sun set.

Salade Niçoise Ingredients:


Note:  I think canned tuna is no longer considered suitable food for the gourmet in the U.S.   That's not true in most of Europe.  Canned tuna is still very popular and the types, brands and range of prices is amazing.  A proper 'Salade Niçoise' would never be served with anything but canned tuna - a premium canned tuna, yes, but never fresh tuna (and in my opinion, fresh tuna is much to dry for a good 'salade').
