The classic Nicoise is a salad composed of tomatoes, tuna, hard boiled eggs, Nicoise olives and anchovies dressed with a vinaigrette.
But who says that when you are tired after working all day, the temperature is rising and you want to eat pretty quickly, you can’t invent your own.
Do you have a rotisserie chicken? Tomatoes this year are in abundance? Hard boiled eggs are something we most always keep in the fridge (Dave and I love the old fashioned egg and olive sandwich). Green beans are so plentiful this time of year and in a pinch, canned tuna is usually in the pantry along with roasted red peppers.
Stir up a flavorful vinaigrette to pour over your arrangement and you have a dinner ready!
In a shaker combine
1 cup olive oil
1/4 cup vinegar (I love red wine vinegar but that’s a personal preference)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Shake well and serve.
