    threeovens's Note:

    A fresh, delicious, and filling twist on an old classic. The salad is named for the nicoise olives, but I use kalamata since nicoise are not available. This recipe is adapted from the June/July 2009 issue of "Everyday with Rachael Ray." The pesto I used is Basil Pesto.

      This is not an authentic Nicoise salad. Although one is obviously free to vary from the authenitc, frozen beans are a true sacralege, since the authentic vesion doesn't even use haricot vert. The salad is not named for nicois olives but for the city of Nice, France. Recpie 103371 is authentic. Also see

      This was really quite tasty! I had everything fresh out of the garden (minus the olives and eggs). It really made a great summer dish! Thanks for the post.
