Super-Easy Salade Nicoise

This super-easy Salade Nicoise is one of my very favorite dishes. I love "all-in-one" dishes like this because they make a great lunch or dinner all by themselves. Here's how I made this pretty and healthful salad:

Super-Easy Salade Nicoise
Mixed greens/lettuce
New potatoes
Fresh green beans
Fresh mushrooms
No-salt tuna (packed in water)
A few kalamata olives (surely one of the best things on earth!)
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Lite balsamic vinaigrette dressing

Wash and cut the potatoes in half. Wash and trim the beans. Steam the potatoes and green beans, just a handful for each salad you're making. Let them cool to room temperature.

Spread lettuce on a plate. Arrange the potatoes, green beans, mushrooms, and olives on top of the lettuce. Add a few chunks of tuna. Add salt (if needed) and freshly ground pepper to taste. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and ENJOY!
