Nicoise salad, sometimes referred to as Salade Niçoise or insalata nizzarda, is a mixed salad consisting of various vegetables topped with tuna and anchovy. It is a specialty of the Côte d’Azur named for the city of Nice. The salad or “salade” is displayed on a flat plate or platter and arranged on a bed of lettuce. Ripe tomato wedges, halved boiled new potatoes, steamed green bean, wedges of hard-cooked eggs, are topped with canned tuna (tinned in oil), and Niçoise olives. Finally the salad is garnished with tinned anchovies. The salad is served with vinaigrette.
