Nicoise Salad....such a great summer meal!
Cute Nephew Brandon was here to sample!
Do you want to try a fun summer dish? I took a cooking class a few weeks ago from Marguerite Henderson & my good friend Tonya Lemone. The class was held in Tonya's beautiful yard and we learned about herbs and how to grow an herb garden. We made herb flavored vinegars and a tussie mussie and potted a plant start. Then we were served a beautiful lunch by Marguerite. It was a yummy Niciose Salad with Salmon and quiche and croissiants and fruit. Yummy lemon herb cookies for dessert. We had such a good time togther!
The other day I attempted to make my version of Nicoise Salad for dinner. It turned out pretty good so if you want to try it, here's my recipe.
Salmon Nicoise Salad
Green beans, (cooked and cooled)
New Potatoes (cooked and cooled)
Sliced red onion
Hard boiled eggs (optional)
Mixed lettuce greeens
Salmon, grilled cut into serving pieces
Honey Mustard Dressing
2 T. Honey
2 T. Rice Wine Vinegar
1 T. Dijon Mustard
1/3 cup Olive Oil
Mix with wisk until it has a creamy look.
I dressed the salad greens with some of the dressing, then put on a serving platter. Next I dressed the beans, potatoes & onions each seperately with the dressing and arranged around the greens. Arrange peeled and sliced hard boiled eggs, if using. Grill the salmon and place it on top.
