Your Salade Niçoise is ready. Best served not too cold.
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.

And to drink?

A rosé from Provence.
A few hours in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

New tiramisu
This new version of tiramisu is easier, and in my opinion much better. You will certainly appreciate, like me, the light creamy taste, this time presented in brandy goblets.
