Sprouted Niçoise Salad

Without dressing, the components of this restaurant-style Niçoise salad keep really well in the fridge. Try piling it all onto crusty bread, too!

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch black pepper

FOR SALAD:

  • 1 lb mini Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 oz green beans , halved
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 2 170g cans solid white tuna , water packed, drained and chunked
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil
  • 2 cup radish , onion, or broccoli sprouts

Instructions

  • Whisk together first 6 dressing ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Place potatoes in a pot of cold salted water, bring to a boil and cook for 15 min or until tender. Remove potatoes with a slotted spoon, reserving cooking water. Cut potatoes in half; set aside.
