Tuna Nicoise Salad
One of my favorite meals, this colorful salad contains lots of protein, healthy monounsaturated fat & greens - perfect for a summer lunch or dinner!
1-2 heads romaine lttuce, chopped
6 oz. canned tuna (organic or low sodium best - make sure it does not contain soy)
1-2 hard boiled eggs, sliced or quartered
10-12 olives of your choice (I like black pitted olives)
Fresh green beans (I like french green beans; 1-2 handfuls should work well)
Sliced cucumber (optional)
1-2 small or medium potatoes, cooked & diced (optional)
1 large tomato, sliced or 5-10 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar & stoneground mustard in a bottle - can add as many herbs & spices as you would like such as onions, parsley or shallots.
Place all salad ingredients on bed of romaine lettuce and drizzle on homemade dressing!
