    dianegrapegrower's Note:

    This is our family’s favorite Nicoise salad. You can substitute canned tuna or grilled chicken for the grilled tuna. Change out the vegetables to suit your taste. The dressing is the best part – flavorful enough to stand up to the potatoes and tuna, without overwhelming the greens. I like to use a mix of lettuces in this salad – for flavor and appearance. Serving size is a generous plateful.

      Loved it! I left out the potatoes since we're trying to eat low-carb and I used a pkg of tuna as opposed to grilling a tuna steak. I wish I could say I used produce out of my garden, but alas, it is too early in the season here in Iowa for that. I prepared double amounts so that I can have another salad for lunch tomorrow. I thought the dressing was very flavorful and didn't overpower any of the other ingredients. Thanks for a great summer recipe!

      I am sure this will be wonderful and easy... I put it in 3 of my cookbooks (including my Julia Child cookbook). I, too, have a Salad Nicoise recipe, Salad Nicoise, but it takes a bit of time. I especially like your addition of the Avocado. I will write more after I try it... thank you for sharing this.
