Following my last blog I wanted to share a salad that embodies the essence of the Mediterranean diet: Salad Niçoise. This is the most famous of all French salads. Its name comes from the city of Nice, on the Côte d’Azur in Provence, France. This French recipe employs tuna, green beans, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, onion, capers, and potatoes. Essentially it is similar to our American Cobb salad except for fish, beans and potatoes instead of chicken, bacon and avocado.
