Nicoise Salad

And another salad recipe, again a total classic and great for summer. I love the combunation of freshly grilled tuna and the salad, I know often the Nicoise is made with canned tuna, but I prefer it fresh, just cooked medium rare. Of course you need to make sure you have a high quality tuna for that.

As the name says, this salad is actually from the Nice region of the Mediterranean France. It is beautiful there and the food is absolutely amazing, there are artichokes, olives, tasty tomatoes, aubergines and so much more that the list would be so long you could not believe it. Food is very important for the loacal people and the Nicoise is one of their great dishes, maybe the best known of them all.
So, then lets get to it, the third salad of this little mini series of beautiful and healthy salads
