Salade Nicoise: The perfect hot weather dinner

doctor_mama | Aug 11, 2005 08:49 PM

It's been so hot and sultry in Boston this summer. I have therefore been turning fairly often to salade nicoise for dinner. It's simple, healthful and delicious. My children love it, too.

Steam about a pound of green and/or wax beans. Remove when still crisp and rinse under cold water. Steam a pouond of new potatoes over the same water until just tender. Drain 2 cans Italian tuna packed in oil. Reserve the oil when draining the tuna and dress the salad with the oil, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. Home grown tomatoes are a plus. Olives are nice too, if you have them.
