Niçoise salad has potatoes, green beans, eggs, tuna, and, of course, niçoise olives.You can use Tuna or Anchovies but if you are a vegetarian you can leave the fish out entirely.

This salad is actually really easy to make. It does take a bit of time because you have to boil the eggs and potatoes and steam the green beans, but it really isn’t too much time, and it is worth every minute! A Salad Niçoise is usually served as a composed salad, which means that the ingredients are arranged decoratively in sections rather than tossed together.
