Tuna-free Salad Nicoise (serves 4)
Basically, Salad Nicoise without any tuna and served with a lemon anchovy dressing (leave out the anchovies and this is a great vegetarian dish). The fresher the ingredients, the better the taste. I swapped out the green beans and replaced them with baby asparagus. I am trying to eat more vegetarian/vegan dishes and, when I do eat meat, to have a smaller portion of it replacing it with more vegetables and this recipe fits the bill exactly!
16 x baby potatoes – cooked and cut into quarters
16 x baby tomatoes – halved
4 x eggs – hard boiled, cut into quarters and then halved
Bunch of baby asparagus – cooked and cut into pieces
8 x black olives – chopped
Slice of red onion – finely chopped
Place all ingredients in a salad bowl and toss with dressing.
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
4 anchovies – finely chopped
Place ingredients in an empty jar with a lid and shake.
