Salade Niçoise

Salade Niçoise

This is not so much a niçoise recipe as a guide. Feel free to add as much or as little of each ingredient as you like - what's important is that every ingredient is as good quality as possible.

Preparation method

  1. For the dressing, whisk the garlic and oil together in a bowl.

  2. Place the eggs into a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring up to the boil, switch off the heat and leave for five minutes. Cool under a cold running tap for 2-3 minutes and then peel the eggs.

  3. For the salad, arrange all of the salad ingredients (except the chervil and basil) in a shallow dish. Pour over the vinegar and garlic oil and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  4. Finish with a sprinkling of chervil and basil and serve at the table.
