Serves 2 | Prep Time: 45 minutes

NICOISE SALAD ingredients
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 2 boiled eggs, sliced – see steps for the perfect egg
  • 2 tomatoes cut in quarters
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 roasted sweet potato & 1 red onion – see steps
  • 1 can of tuna in olive oil
  • 1 celery stock, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of pitted kalamata olives
  • Olive oil to drizzle
  • Garnish with basil leaves
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Cilantro sauce Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 cup of cilantro
  • 1/2 cup of fresh dill
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper, to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Steps
  1. Roasted Sweet Potato & Onion: Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scatter the onions and evenly place the sweet potato rounds on top, drizzle with olive oil. Add salt & pepper. Roast for about 20 minutes, flip the potatoes, then roast for another 15 minutes – until onions are crispy but not burnt!
  2. Boiled Eggs: My technique for the perfect egg: place eggs in a pot filled with cold water + salt, bring to a boil. When water is boiling set your timer for 3 minutes. Remove eggs from boiling water and rinse with cold water. Peel eggs and set aside to let cool.
  3. Cilantro Sauce: While veggies are baking, blend all cilantro sauce ingredients until smooth.
  4. Tuna: Mix canned tuna in a bowl with the chopped celery, salt, pepper and the Cilantro Sauce.
  5. Assembly: Place everything together in a large salad plate. Start with a bed of spinach, scoop the tuna in the middle, then arrange around the plate the rest of the ingredients, add the olives & then drizzle with olive oil. Garnish with basil leaves and add salt & pepper to taste. Enjoy!
