Top Rated Nicoise Salad Recipes

I have to admit, I've never been a fan of the original tuna Niçoise salad. I thought it was boring to make and not very exciting to eat. But then I needed a new and creative idea for lobster, and I needed it to be easy for a dinner party, and alas, lobster Niçoise salad was born. I have to say, it's more enjoyable than I thought.

The idea here is to serve the individual components on separate platters on a buffet table so guests can build their own salad. We like to use a variety of platters in different shapes and sizes — a white platter for the salmon, a wooden board for the truffled deviled eggs, a tall white compote dish for the tomatoes in olive vinaigrette — to add interest and height to the buffet table.

My Father's Daughter
One cold wintry day in London, I was dreaming about salad Niçoise — one of my favorites. It didn’t seem right to be eating something so crispy and chilly in the dead of winter, so I devised this hot version. It’s a one-pan dish and an easy cleanup. Perfect for when you are having friends for Sunday lunch or dinner but you don’t have hours to prep. Click here to see the Gwyneth Makes Pappardelle for Jay-Z and Mario-B story.

Niçoise Salad with Grilled Vegetables and Basil-Mustard Vinaigrette
When a salad graduates from an afterthought to a showpiece, chances are you’re talking Salade Niçoise. Packed with flavor, it’s a light but complete meal that also sticks to your ribs. It’s perhaps my favorite dish to have on hot days. Here I take the classic Provençal dish and serve it with grilled vegetables and a basil vinaigrette — all in celebration of summer’s exuberant flavors. On a side note, although my Niçoise is fishless, grilled tuna steak would be a great addition to it. See all tuna recipes.
