Nicoise Salad

Hey, it’s Wednesday already! That means it’s almost the weekend……. 😉 This sun makes me so happy. I love eating dinner on my newly re-docorated patio.  I also love this salad. If you haven’t tried nicoise salad yet, DO IT. It’s heavenly, and  it’s also super filling. The green beans, potatoes and eggs make this salad into a meal. The flavours are so fresh and crisp, I just love it. It does take a bit of time to prep all the different ingredients, but if you make extra, you can eat this salad more than once. 😉 I added a few non traditional ingredients to my nicoise to make it my own, like radish and beets. I hope you love this perfect spring salad.
