It's kind of the French version of the Cobb Salad. But I threw tradition aside and went for what I thought would taste good rather than striving for the most authentic Salade Nicoise evarrrrr
I must preface this by saying that it did not turn out like I expected. I undercooked my hard boiled eggs (rookie mistake) so they were out. I forgot to buy red potatoes so they were out too. I used canned tuna. Like I said, my recipe is merely an imitation of French culinary genius, but stick with me here.
Oh, and I cut myself while cutting veggies, so that mini emergency also led to the thrown together nature of our lunch. But whatever! It tasted good!
