    Pets'R'us's Note:

    For a summer lunch or dinner, one of my favorite salads. There is always a debate going on about this salad, what should be in there and what not. I don't use potatoes in mine, but if you like to add them, do so. I have added the sardines because I like them in this salad, but you can leave them out. The dressing can be drizzled over the salad instead of mixing it in, or you can use your own favorite dressing. Serve with some nice bread, and a glass of wine (of course!) Cook time of the beans is not included.

      what a lovely luncheon salad. i used romaine lettuce and did add some baby new potatoes. lots of cucumbers and tomatoes, lots of anchovies, no sardines. i really enjoyed the tarragon in the dressing, which i sprinkled over all.

      I have always wanted to make a Nicoise salad and I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand (except anchovies and sardines). I prepared it according to the recipe with wonderful results. Very healthy meal (especially if you include red wine as suggested!) It is very simple to make, tastes great and the presentation is lovely. I can see making this quite often, especially in the summer when the tomatoes actually taste like tomatoes! Definitely a keeper. Thanks Pets!

      I wanted something light for dinner that I would be able to customize for picky eaters and this fit the bill. My son felt that it was okay, but the rest of us enjoyed it. I added tarragon and a tiny bit of dried herbs de province to the dressing and I quite enjoyed it and will use it for other salads in the future.
