Nicoise Salad Recipe

Master the famous Nicoise salad with this easy to make recipe.


• 4 large eggs

• 6 ounces green beans trimmed

• 8 ounces baby potatoes halved

• 1 cup grape tomatoes halved, or cucumbers

• 2 tablespoons capers

• ½ cup mixed olives

• 1 can oil-packed tuna 6 ounces

• 4 cups romaine lettuce washed and dried


• 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

• 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

• 1 teaspoon honey

• ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

• ⅓ cup olive oil

• salt & pepper to taste



• Fill a small bowl and a large bowl with ice water.

• Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and once boiling, cover with a lid. Remove from the heat and let sit 10-12 minutes. Remove eggs and place them in the small bowl of ice water. Set aside.

• While eggs are simmering, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add halved potatoes and boil 10 minutes. Add green beans to the boiling water and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender and beans are tender crisp. Drain and place in the large bowl of ice water.

• Drain the potatoes, toss with a little bit of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.


• Place all dressing ingredients except oil in a small bowl. Whisk while very slowly drizzling in the olive oil. Once all of the oil has been added, season with salt & pepper to taste.


• Arrange lettuce, potatoes, and beans on a serving platter.

• Peel eggs under cold water. Cut in half and add to the plate. Add tomatoes and olives.

• Lightly drain the tuna and gently break apart with a fork. Place on top of the salad.

• Drizzle dressing overtop and garnish with capers and fresh parsley if desired.


Optional Additions:

Radishes, sweet cornichons, red onions, fresh herbs

Eggs can be cooked in an air fryer if desired (I cook them at 250°F for 15 minutes to get jammy yolks). No water required.

Keep leftover salad niçoise ingredients from the lettuce in a separate container for up to 2 days. Leftover dressing will last about 7 days in the refrigerator.
