Nicoise-ish Salad

This one’s for those look to de-carb their life a little. Ordinarily a Niçoise salad would come with potatoes, but here, I’ve subbed that for a small piece of sliced French baguette with good quality butter. As for that the rest of the salad remains inspired by the French classic.

  • Romaine leaves dressed in a simple vinaigrette of olive oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, chopped garlic, salt and pepper
  • Medium cooked eggs, sliced in half
  • Good quality tuna in oil, I’ve used King Oscar brand here but also like Tonnino and Jose Gourmet
  • Green peppercorns
  • Black olives
  • Green beans

For the beans, I like to cook them in a frying pan, quickly at high heat. I cook them with finely chopped shallots that crispy and carmelize. I also use garlic powder, that helps dry the beans out and crisp them – as well as a little soy sauce at the end to add more umami hit.
