1/1 Photo of Nicoise Salad With Grilled Tuna
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.
