Of course the recipe for making the perfect Salad Nicoise is to use the freshest of ingredients. Now they didn't use fresh tuna (but they did use a good quality tinned that wasn't dripping in oil but was nicely flaky) and they added a few extra ingredients which really made it extra special.
Ingredients for the perfect Salad Nicoise
Tuna - this had about a whole tin!
Hard boiled egg (halved)
Tiny sweet tomatoes (halved)
An assortment of green lettuce leaves with a few thrown in for good measure
Garnish with fresh basil leaves
Simply dress with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for the best summer salad. Preferably eat sitting overlooking Cap Ferrat but if you can't do that by an open window when the sun shines is pretty good too.
