Nicoise Salad

61

Nicoise Salad is a delectable cornucopia of fresh vegetables, Nicoise olives, red potatoes, hard boiled eggs and tuna drizzled with a tangy light mustard vinaigrette. It is not tossed but rather elegantly arranged on a platter or serving plate making it as pretty as it is delicious. The different array of flavor combinations comes together so well in this heart healthy salad.
