    My favorite kitchen equipment:
    For the salad:
    5-6 Lettuce leaves
    4 medium potatoes
    3 eggs, hard boiled
    1/2 Red onion
    10-12 cherry tomatoes
    1 tuna fillet or canned tuna
    40g Olives
    200g (7oz) Green beans
    1 tablespoon capers
    For the dressing:
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1/2 cup Olive oil
    3 tablespoons Vinegar
    1. Preparations: peel the potatoes, cut into chunks, place in a large pot, cover with water, season with 1 teaspoon of salt, bring to a boil and cook until fork tender. Drain and let cool. Boil the eggs for 10 minutes, peel and set aside. Cook the green beans until ready. Set aside.
    2. Thinly slice the onion, cut in half cherry tomatoes and hard boiled eggs. Set aside.
    3. Place all vegetables in a large bowl and set aside.
    4. Make the dressing: in a medium size bowl whisk mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. While whisking slowly pour olive oil. Set aside the dressing.
    5. Mix all the vegetables with half of the dressing.
    6. Lay the lettuce leaves onto a large plate. Transfer the salad to the plate.
    7. Season the tuna with salt and pepper from both sides. Heat olive oil over medium heat and cook the tuna 2 minutes from each side. Slice and place on top of the salad.
    8. Cut boiled eggs in half and add to the salad. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the remaining dressing.
    • You can use white wine or red wine vinegar.
    • You can use fresh tuna or canned tuna.

    I also use fresh tuna for my Niçoise salad, but I prefer my tuna pretty rare. I also add a hard boiled yolk to my vinaigrette for more body.

    Looks great, but would be even better with a neater presentation. Yes, it's a country dish but when I've had it the ingredients are always clumped together in grouping on bed of lettuce. That way has more visual pop. JAT

    Foodie, you did it again! If you can make a freaking salad look appealing for us red meat eating barbarians, you know you are good at what you do. Keep up the good work. And how is it that every time I watch your videos I end up starving Evan after I just ate? Lol
