Salade |Nicoise|For One

2014-05-19 20.06.37

So this recipe would be AMAZING for a lunch with friends you want to impress. It’s fresh, salty, bitter, soft and crunchy. The dressing is tangy and delicious. I absolutely loved it and wished I had someone to show off to…congrats blog readers, you are that person.

As this is for one, you will want to add more for a crowd of…more than one…which I consider  a crowd.

NOTE: This is not wholly a true Nicoise salad because my olives are Spanish, not Nicoise, the dressing is my own take on the traditional dressing and I couldn’t bear to add anchovies.  I used this Saveur recipe and rolled with it.


  • 1 radish, sliced
  • 1/2 a cucumber, halved then sliced
  • 1 small potato or 1 new potatoes
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 of tuna in oil
  • handful of black olives, halved
  • handful of green beans, blanched
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • handful of capers

For the dressing

  • 1/4 yellow onion, minced
  • 1 tbs honey mustard
  • 1 tbs whole mustard seeds
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 1 tbs lemon juice

Plate everything in lines on a pretty plate.  Add your dressing on top.  Doesn’t get easier than that, kids!
