Rich salads to eat during lunch break. We offer you the Nizzarda

The Nicoise salad, also known as salade niçoise it's a typical dish of the Côte d'Azur, but also very famous on the coast of Liguria. This is what we would call a "saladona" too trivially because of one lettuce base we add many other ingredients including the tuna, eggs, potatoes, olives and some vegetables.
It is a single dish easy and quick to prepare. Let's see how.

The classic recipe of Nicoise salad

The original recipe for this salad includes one lettuce base (or mixed salad) enriched with boiled potatoes cut into rounds, steamed green beans, hard-boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, a few fillets of anchovy and tuna in oil, a handful of black olives and a yellow pepper. Everything is seasoned with oil, salt, vinegar and pepper. The salad should be served with all the ingredients in sight and arranged in an elegant way, so better to use the comfortable single-serving bowls so that everyone can season it at will.

Discover now in the tutorial how to make some variations of the Nice.
