Week 17- Salad Niçoise

Hi and welcome to our Vegetarian Kitchen. Summer has arrived and once again our recipe is for a lovely salad, from Nice on the Mediterranean. A tasty salad with ingredients readily available in France and here.

SALAD NICOISE (Vegetarian style)

Serves 4 to 6


3 hard boiled Eggs (cut into quarters)

1 Lettuce

1 Red Onion (cut into thin slices)

1/2 Cucumber (sliced)

3 Tomatoes (sliced)

1 Green or Red Pepper (sliced)

12 Black Olives

12 cooked French Beans (cut in half)

6 very small cooked New Potatoes (minute)

1 teaspoon chopped fresh Basil

sauce vinaigrette (recipe below)


3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon vinegar

salt & pepper

Put in a bowl and mix well. Whisk well.



Tear the lettuce into pieces, put in a very large serving bowl, add all the sliced vegetables and toss. Add black olives, green beans, and new potatoes, stir in. Toss all the ingredients then add the sauce vinaigrette. SERVE IMMEDIATELY.

Lovely light lunch/supper on a summer day. Add wholemeal rolls or crusty bread. A glass of Rose' Wine, perfect.
