Tuna-Less Nicoise Salad

Ingredients

“The key to this salad is having everything pre-prepared and then just throwing it all together when you’re ready to eat.” 
Serves 2
  • 2-3 eggs, hard boiled, peeled and sliced in half
  • big handful of green beans, ends cut off and blanched
  • 4-6 potatoes (depending on their size) boiled, peeled and sliced into quarters
  • handful or 2 of kalamata olives, pitted
  • 1 large tomato cut into big chunks (heirlooms are great at this time of year)
  • 2 big handfuls arugula
FOR THE DRESSING:
Option 1: Anchovy Vinaigrette
  • 1/4-1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 anchovy fillets, ground to a paste in a mortar and pestle
  • pinch sea salt and black pepper
Option 2: Lemon and Hemp seed dressing
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • pinch sea salt + black pepper
  • 2-4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds

The Prep

  1. Make your dressing of choice by either throwing all of the ingredients into a mason jar with a lid and shaking until mixed or whisk together in a bowl.
  2. Arrange the salad ingredients on a plate starting with the arugula first. Then add in the beans, potatoes, eggs, tomatoes and olives.
  3. Drizzle with the dressing and a little cracked pepper and enjoy with a nice cold glass of rose!
