Broccoli Nicoise Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by CarsonM

A nice variation on a traditional niçoise salad! I thought the dressing was really nice, and that's probably the most important part; I added some dried thyme and herbes de Provence. As for the rest of the salad, I put in some steamed green beans, left out the bacon, added an extra hard-boiled egg, used fingerling potatoes, and served it over spring greens and baby lettuces, with halved campari and mandarin tomatoes. That's the fun thing about salads, you can customize them to bits! Very colorful, nice flavor, and definitely a recipe I'd make again.
