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.

Super salad! I have made this recipe twice, once with tuna and once with grilled chicken. Both were delicious. I love the light spring feeling with your combination of vegetables. And it's versatile. When I had grilled chicken to use up, I added new potatoes and cucumbers and skipped anchovies and sardines. It was even a hit with the kids. Next time I will add avocado and in any case, though I did like yours, everyone is allowed to choose their own dressing. Thank you for posting!

Very nice - we found we needed a lot more dressing. Grilled albacore steak instead of using canned tuna (yum) Omitted the sardines and anchovies and added avocado.

This is definitely a traditional salad nicoise! Gato really enjoyed it, although I used the dressing from Grilled Tuna Salad Nicoise because I had all of the ingredients on hand. Both this salad and that dressing were absolutely wonderful and Gato has requested a repeat. Thanks Pets 'R Us.

This was a wonderful summer salad in which we were able to use alot of fresh produce. Used both sardines and anchovies. Each mouthful had a different taste as there are so many different ingredients. My husband made this salad for our dinner and he too loved it!!!!!! I've never seen him enjoy a salad as much as this one. I will make this again and again. Thanks for posting.

Made for a great fresh-tasting and light dinner! I was concerned that it might taste too "fishy" but it really does not...more like crunchy with the lettuce, beans and tomatoes and briny with the capers, olives..loved it, thanks.

This is a delicious salad. I added some steamed new crop Jersey Royal potatoes and used Cos lettuce. I also used a mixture of green beans and shelled broad beans. Did not do the sardines, and mashed the anchovy into the dressing just as a personal preference. Thanks for a great recipe!
