Salade Niçoise is a typical Mediterranean dish that originated around the French city of Nice.

As there is no real "official" recipe, everyone has their own personal version. This is mine.

Remarks

You will notice that this recipe contains neither potatoes nor green beans, which to my mind aren't sufficiently Mediterranean to be included.

As with any salad recipe, the amounts are only approximate, so do adapt it to suit yourself.
