Nioise salad is a specialty of the region of Nice in France, and generally contains tomatoes, raw peppers, anchovies, garlic, and black olives, as well as green beans, tuna, new potatoes and hard-boiled eggs, served with a salad dressing.
Other ingredients may include capers, crispy lettuce, finely chopped shallots or onion, cucumber chunks, artichoke hearts, or broad beans.
Salade Nioise comes in many different forms .

Of all main-course salads, the Nioise is my all-time favorite, with its fresh butter-lettuce foundation; its carefully cooked, beautifully green green beans; its colorful contrast of halved hard-boiled eggs, ripe red tomatoes, and black olives; all fortified by chunks of tunafish and freshly opened anchovies. It's a perfect luncheon dish, to my mind, winter, summer, spring, and fall an inspired combination that pleases everyone.

Ingredients:

1 large head Boston-lettuce leaves, washed and dried
1 pound green beans, cooked and refreshed
1-1/2 tablespoons minced shallots
1/2 to 2/3 cup basic vinaigrette
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3 or 4 ripe red tomatoes, cut into wedges (or 10 to 12 cherry tomatoes, halved) ...more
