I really wish I had an exciting story to tell about this salad but the truth is, this is a pretty classic Tuna Nicoise. I did make a few changes but the essence of the traditional French salad remained 😉 I used asparagus instead of French green beans, just cause they were in season and I thought it would be a nice change. Annnd I didn’t make this with potatoes as most recipes do. And frankly I didn’t miss them. But next time I’d be curious to try it with roasted sweet potatoes or maybe even some crispy home-made shoe-string fries. Always room for experiments I guess.
Ok now can we just take a moment to take a look at this beautiful tuna?!
I mean really it doesn’t get much better than this. I had a hard time not eating this thing raw while cutting the veggies. Ok I just had a tiny piece. So tender.
Oh and also I would like to mention that I know how to spell Nicoise properly but my keyboard doesn’t speak French. . I just had to point that out. I know my French. However I am not a computer expert, not even close.. Actually it’s a small miracle I can operate this website by myself. So if you ever considered starting a blog but feel intimidated, don’t be. If I can do it anyone can.
