I couldn't decide what to fix for dinner last night. Then I remembered that I had one jar of tuna left that my husband's cousins had given us from their catch in Mexico. So I decided to fix a Nicoise Salad. Minus the olives (I forgot to put any on the salad). A quick stop at the store on the way home for some green beans and eggs. I didn't follow any recipe-just made a simple dressing of lemon juice, olive oil, Dijon mustard, parsley,garlic,salt, pepper, and some caper juice. I hard boiled some eggs, blanched green beans, and cooked a couple of potatoes until soft. That was placed on top of lettuce that was tossed with the dressing, then tomato wedges were added and capers were sprinkled on top. Maybe this isn't a true Nicoise, but I love this salad. I sometimes make it with a simple salmon fillet on top instead of the tuna. A healthy, delicious dinner with a slice of toasted bread and a glass of wine.

I haven't had a salad
nicoise in a long time. This is a good reminder...mmmm love your photos. They make me so hungry.

That looks delicious! I love salads.


Nothing like a good nicoise salad in the summer. Never think about having it in the winter...


Yum. We also often have a nicoise-like salad for dinner. I like some crumbles of blue or goat cheese for more tang sometimes. I love all the different flavors in each forkful.


Ooooooooooooohhhh! That looks absolutely delish! I'll be making this very soon!

Yet another beautiful Cindy photo! I haven't had Nicoise in ages. Time to go buy some tuna.

OK, I'm on my way for lunch~
I love this photo! Even though I've just finished dinner, I am now hungry again!

Now I am craving hard boiled eggs...
