We enjoyed this light and refreshing salad. Really Liked the dressing. Used lettuce and tomatoes from our garden. Thank You. Made for ZWT8.
A wonderfully light lunch I thoroughly enjoyed and as I don't care of tuna I used 1/2 a small tin of red salmon, omited the olives and used homegrown iceberg lettuce, made it all up on the plate earlier in the day and covered with cling wrap for lunch when we got back from shopping. Got back a bit later than expected and realized I hadn't made the dressing and I just had to eat so used a non fat french dressing I already had and really enjoyed. Thank you **Jubes**, made for team mate in the Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #57 October 2011.
We enjoyed this a lot thanks Jubes. Tuna and hard boiled egg tend to be on the dry side and I'd have liked more dressing, but didn't want to make more, to keep the fat count down. Russ reckoned the egg and lemon dressing wasn't a good match but I don't listen to him-what's a nicoise salad often got in it after all!! I had no olives (I can't believe that!) but wanted the salty hit so used capers instead and they worked well with the other ingredients.
