Recently I met up with a dear friend of mine who happens to be from Italy. Of all the things that she gave me were two cans of really good italian tuna packed in good olive oil. I looked through my pantry and some ingredients called for a traditional French Nicoise salad, but then some of the others screamed Italian, so this is what I can up with. Barely no cooking involved, just a combination of good ingredients and super healthy. Should you choose to be a purist I am attaching a link to Julia Child’s Salade Nicoise recipe.
For my rendition you will need:
Hard boiled eggs
Flash steamed green beans (I would go for fresh beans, even though I used canned beans)
Good Tuna packed in good Olive oil. You could also get adventurous and poach tuna fillets in olive oil and then flake them.
salt and pepper for seasoning.
Now assemble according to your taste.
