Mixed Seafood Nicoise Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by crispychick

I can't remember where I got this recipe, but it's a good one. This will really impress your friends for a summer time BBQ- takes some effort but so much of it can be done in advance and then you grill the seafood at the last minute. You can simplify this, too, by omitting some of the seafoods or any of the ingredients you aren't in the mood for. If you're not into Nicoise salads, the dressing alone is a recipe worth trying.

Not at all traditional, but I liked it a lot. I used white wine vinegar instead of the apple cider vinegar.
