Provided by Danilo Alfaro

Categories     Entree     Lunch     Salad

Time 30m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 16

For the Salad:
1/2 pound white potatoes (scrubbed)
1/4 pound fresh green beans (trimmed)
4 cups salad greens (either baby greens or larger greens torn into bite-sized pieces)
1 large (12-oz.) can tuna (drained)
4 hard boiled eggs (peeled and quartered)
2/3 cup brine-cured pitted black olives (e.g. Kalamata)
10 to 12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
For the Dressing:
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup aged red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 cloves fresh garlic (peeled)
3-4 anchovy fillets
Kosher salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste


  • Gather the ingredients.
  • Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Boil the potatoes for about 4 minutes.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon, drain, then slice them in half. (Leave the water in the pot, though; you'll use it for blanching the green beans in a few moments.)
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, with a bit of olive oil until it's quite hot, then place the sliced potatoes in the pan, cut-side down.
  • Sear for a minute or two until the potatoes are lightly browned, then remove them from the pan and transfer to a bowl. Toss with kosher salt and set aside.
  • Bring the water back to a boil, and add the green beans. Blanch for 2 minutes.
  • Remove with tongs to a bowl of ice water to shock them and keep them from cooking further. Drain and dry them with paper towels and set aside.
  • Combine the oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, and anchovies in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. (The anchovies are salty, so you might not need much additional salt.)
  • Place the salad greens in a bowl. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the dressing and toss to coat. Arrange the greens on 4 serving plates or 1 large platter. Distribute the potato halves equally, with the browned sides facing up.
  • Toss the green beans, olives, and tomatoes with enough additional dressing to lightly coat them, and arrange them on the salad.
  • Divide the tuna and place it in the center of plates. Arrange the hard-boiled egg quarters, then garnish with the fresh parsley and serve. Note: Instead of the vinaigrette, you could serve a Niçoise salad with garlic aioli .

4 large eggs
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 shallot, minced (about 2 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
Freshly ground pepper

  • Make the dressing: Whisk the vinegar, shallot, mustard, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl. Whisk in the olive oil in a slow, steady stream until emulsified.
  • Toss the tomatoes ian a small bowl with salt and pepper to taste. Add about 1/4 cup dressing to the potatoes and toss. Quarter the hard-cooked eggs.
  • Divide the lettuce among 4 plates. Arrange the potatoes, haricots verts, radishes, hard-cooked eggs and tuna on top. Pour any juices from the tomatoes into the dressing, then add the tomatoes to the plates. Drizzle with the dressing and top with the olives.

Salade Niçoise image

This classic French salad, with its vibrant composition of fresh and cooked vegetables, unctuous oil-cured tuna, anchovies, and soft-boiled eggs, is filling enough to be a meal. Chef Boulud offers two options for dressing: a simple garnish of lemon and oil, or his grandmother's cherished vinaigrette recipe.

Provided by Daniel Boulud

Categories     main-dish

Time 45m

Yield 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 29

10 fingerling potatoes
1 sprig thyme
1 bay leaf
Sea salt
8 ounces haricots verts, ends trimmed, thin green beans; also called French beans
3 large eggs
1 bunch scallions
8 French breakfast radishes, or Cherry Belle radishes
1 head Boston lettuce
1 head baby gem lettuce
1 bunch cocktail tomatoes, on the vine
1 pound canned Mediterranean tuna, packed in oil, preferably Tonnino or La Pescadora brands
1 bunch purple or sweet basil
1 bunch chervil
1/2 cup black niçoise olives
3 cups arugula leaves, loosely packed
1 8-oz can Spanish anchovies, preferably Don Bocarte brand
1 lemon
extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt
Freshly ground white pepper
3 cloves garlic, sliced
Sea salt
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
13 grinds Freshly ground white pepper
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Water, as needed to thin


  • Potatoes: Fill a small saucepan with water. Add potatoes, thyme sprig, bay leaf, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Haricots vert: Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to a boil. When boiling, add a big pinch of salt, followed by haricots verts. Cook until tender with a slight snap, 4-9 minutes depending on size. Eggs: Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a boil. When boiling, use a spoon to gently ease eggs into the water. Cook exactly 7½ minutes. Meanwhile, prepare two ice baths: Fill two large bowls with water and plenty of ice.
  • Scallions: Trim away the very end of the root while keeping scallion intact; remove the thick outer layer. Cut away the dark green top, leaving a 3-inch length of white and light-green scallion. Make several 1-inch vertical cuts down the top to create a scallion "brush." Repeat with all the scallions and place them in an ice bath to preserve freshness. Radishes: Slice each radish lengthwise into thin slices. Set aside.
  • When beans are mostly tender with a touch of firmness, use a strainer to transfer them to an ice bath to stop the cooking. Remove eggs and place them into the same ice bath. Check potatoes for doneness by piercing one with a knife; there should be no resistance. Remove potatoes and set aside; discard thyme and bay leaf. Peel eggs, slice in half lengthwise, and set aside.
  • Assembly: On a serving platter, layer the Boston lettuce, followed by the baby gem. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and distribute evenly, followed by haricots verts, scallions, whole tomatoes, radish, large chunks of tuna, and eggs. Garnish with leaves of basil and chervil.
  • Pit olives (optional): Place olives on a flat surface. Press the bottom of a small bowl on the olives to loosen their pits; remove and discard the pits. Scatter the pitted olives over the salad. Next, tuck small bunches of arugula within the lettuce. Finally, finish assembling the salad by laying about 10 anchovies evenly across the top.
  • Chef Boulud offers two options for dressing the salad. Lemon & Oil Dressing: Zest lemon evenly over the salad, then sprinkle with lemon juice. Drizzle with olive oil, and finish with pepper and salt. (Note: Use salt with moderation, since the tuna and anchovies are already salted.) Grand-Mère's Vinaigrette: In a bowl, add the sliced garlic and a pinch of salt. Use a fork to mash the garlic into a coarse paste. Add mustard, vinegar, and pepper; stir to combine. Add olive oil in a slow stream, whisking constantly with the fork to emulsify. Add a teaspoon of water at a time, whisking between additions, to thin vinaigrette as desired. Place vinaigrette into a serving dish and serve alongside the salad.

Salad niçoise image

A Gordon Ramsay classic made simple. This salad niçoise is a fresh-tasting summer meal

Provided by Gordon Ramsay

Categories     Dinner, Lunch, Main course, Starter, Supper

Time 55m

Number Of Ingredients 16

300g small new potato
100g fine green bean , trimmed
3 eggs , as fresh as you can get them
2 Baby Gem lettuces , outside leaves trimmed off
5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
200g cherry tomato , halved
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
small handful basil leaves
325g piece fresh tuna loin
½ lemon , juiced
50g black olive , preferably niçoise, pitted
5 marinated anchovies fillets
1 garlic clove
½ lemon , juiced
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • First, make the dressing. Tip the olives, anchovies and garlic into a large mortar and mash with a pestle until you have a very rough paste. Scrape into a bowl, if you like, stir in the lemon juice, olive oil and vinegar, then set aside.
  • Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 15 mins until tender, then drain and set aside. Cook the beans in boiling salted water for 4-5 mins until tender with a slight crunch. Drain, tip into iced water, then drain again and set aside. Boil a small pan of water and cook the eggs until cooked to your liking, about 6 mins for a soft yolk and 7½ mins for a harder yolk.
  • Halve the potatoes and heat 2 tbsp oil in a non-stick frying pan. Place the potatoes cut-side down in the pan and sizzle for about 4 mins until golden and crisp. Toss the potatoes in the pan to brown on all sides, then turn up the heat and add the tomatoes. Fry the tomatoes for about 1 min until just starting to blister, then season. Splash in 1 tbsp of the balsamic vinegar, then turn off the heat and scatter over the basil.
  • To cook the tuna, place a non-stick frying pan over a high heat, then turn the heat down to medium and add 1 tbsp oil. Season the tuna generously, then sear for 4 mins, leaving it undisturbed in the pan to brown. Turn over and continue to cook for 4 mins on the other side. This will give you very rare tuna. For rare, cook for 2 mins more on each side and for well done, add another 4 mins on each side. Set the tuna aside to rest for a few mins.
  • To serve, whisk the remaining oil and vinegar with the lemon juice in a small bowl and toss in the lettuce wedges. Place a spoonful of olive dressing into 2 serving bowls, arrange the potatoes and tomatoes over, then put a pile of beans on top. Slice the tuna in half at a slight angle and place each half on top of the beans. Wedge the lettuce around the outside, halve the eggs and position in between the lettuce. Dollop a small spoonful of olive dressing on each egg.


Salade Niçoise image

This salad was inspired by a classic Salade Niçoise with its fresh anchovies, potatoes and green beans, and one offered to me by Alice Waters, owner of Chez Panisse, who comes to France every year to avail herself of, among other things, the fine green beans of summer.

Provided by Susan Herrmann Loomis

Yield Serves 8 to 10

Number Of Ingredients 26

For the vinaigrette:
3 tablespoons best quality cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium new white onion, sliced paper-thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups flat-leaf parsley leaves, loosely packed
3/4 cup mixture of tarragon and fresh chervil leaves, loosely packed
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
N/A freshly ground black pepper
For the Salad:
2 pounds fresh tuna
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, for rubbing on the tuna
N/A Sea salt
N/A freshly ground black pepper
20 anchovy fillets (preferably packed in oil)
1 pound green beans, trimmed
1 pound yellow beans, trimmed
2 pounds of tiny new potatoes, scrubbed
1/2 each red and yellow bell peppers, cut in thin (1/4-inch) strips
1/2 yellow bell peppers
6 medium red and yellow tomatoes, stemmed and quartered
5 farm eggs, hard-cooked and peeled
1 cup nicoise olives
Sprigs of parsley and chervil, for garnish
N/A chervil Sprigs


  • Make the vinaigrette:
  • In a large bowl make the vinaigrette by whisking together the vinegar and the mustard. Slowly whisk in the oil in a thin stream to emulsify the mixture. Stir in the garlic and the onions. Mince the parsley and add it, with the tarragon and chervil, to the dressing, mixing well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Make the Salad:
  • Rinse the tuna, pat it dry and refrigerate it until just before cooking.
  • Build a small fire in a barbecue. When the coals are red and dusted with ash, spread them out, and lay the rosemary atop them. Set the grill atop the coals. Rub the tuna on all sides lightly with olive oil, and place on the grill. Cover the grill, leaving the vents open, so the tuna grills and smokes at the same time. Grill until the tuna is lightly golden and almost cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Carefully turn the tuna and cook until it is golden on the other side and opaque through, an additional 5 to 7 minutes. The cooking time will vary depending on the heat of the fire, so check it carefully. Transfer the tuna to a plate, season it lightly all over with salt and pepper, and let it cool to room temperature. When it is cool enough to handle, carefully remove the skin and any bones. Drizzle it on both sides with about 3 tablespoons of the vinaigrette, then reserve at room temperature.
  • Drain the anchovies of oil and pat them dry.
  • Bring 4 cups water to a boil in the bottom of a steamer. Add half the beans, cover, and steam until they are tender firm, about 6 minutes. Remove from the steamer and let cool on a wire rack covered with a cotton tea towel. Repeat with the remaining beans.
  • Transfer one-third of the dressing to a medium sized bowl.
  • Bring a medium-sized pot of salted water to a boil, and add the potatoes. Cook just until they are tender through, about 15 minutes. Drain. If you want to peel them, do so as soon as they are cool enough to handle. Add them, still warm, to the one-third of the vinaigrette. Toss, and reserve.
  • To assemble the salad, just before serving toss the beans and the peppers with enough vinaigrette to fully moisten them, and arrange them in the center of a serving platter. Top them with the anchovy fillets, arranging them attractively on top. Quarter the eggs, and place them, with the tomatoes, around the beans and peppers. Drizzle them with 2 to 3 tablespoons of the vinaigrette.
  • Place the potatoes on another platter. Break the tuna apart into large pieces, and arrange the pieces attractively atop the potatoes. Sprinkle with the olives. Drizzle with any remaining vinaigrette, and garnish with several sprigs of parsley and chervil. Serve immediately.
