Hedi's Nicoise Salad

This classic French salad serves two people as a nutritious main meal, or four to six people as a side dish.

Ingredients
1 small Cos lettuce or similar, washed, drained and chopped
3 eggs, hard-boiled for 6 minutes
1 punnet cherry tomatoes
6 anchovies
2 teaspoons small capers
300g canned tuna
2 tablespoons small olives
3-4 baby potatoes
200g baby beans
fresh parsley, chopped

Dressing
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
black pepper, freshly ground
1 teaspoon French tarragon, fresh or dried

Method

1. Arrange the chopped lettuce on a large, white platter. Cut the hard-boiled eggs and the tomatoes into halves and place them around the platter on the lettuce.
2. Add the anchovies, capers (which have been rinsed in fresh water to remove brine), tuna and olives to the salad, spreading them around evenly.
3. Boil the baby potatoes until they're just cooked, then cut them into quarters.
4. Plunge the baby beans into boiling water, boil for 2-3 minutes, then refresh them in chilled water to keep them bright green and slightly crunchy.
5. Make the dressing by combining all the dressing ingredients in a medium bowl. Add the potatoes and beans to the dressing and toss gently.
6. Carefully arrange the dressed potatoes and beans in a star pattern over the salad, and spoon the rest of the dressing over the salad leaves. Garnish with chopped parsley and freshly ground black pepper.
