Nicoise salad traditionally contains anchovies, but in this one they are replaced by capers.


  1. Cook the beans and potatoes seperately in boiling water. Leave to cool and slice them.
  2. Quarter the tomatoes and arrange them with the beans and potatoes on individual salad plates.
  3. Combine the oil, vinegar, mustard and seasoning then pour over the salad.
  4. Chop the olives finely, combine them with the capers and sprinkle this over the salad.

Very nice salad. The market didn't have French beans so I used a mixture of green and yellow beans. I also used only 3 tomatoes.I mixed all the ingredients together in one bowl rather than individual plates since not everyone made it to dinner. I would have like the dressing to have a bit more bite, but that's just a personal preference. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag.

This made a very nice salad along with some soup. I used leftover green beans, fingerling potatoes and cherry tomatoes. I added a little homemade french dressing that was leftover and it was great! Thanks!
