Sometimes, your body needs a salad. And I'm all for that, but sometimes your body also needs some meat and some protein and some something other than green.
And that's where chicken and salmon and eggs and tuna and nuts come in. Salads can be made of lots of things. And a Niçoise covers so many of these satisfying bases.
Now, if I was Natasha, I'd include fresh, seared tuna. But I'm not, so instead I used canned, though something nice and white, of the Albacore variety. Steamed potatoes and crisp green beans. Hard boiled eggs doused in pepper and chopped capers. Oil and vinegar.
When you put it all together, few things are a greater symphony of flavours.
