Salad Nicoise

Mixed greens, tomatoes, potatoes, green beans (and tuna) ... foundation for the very flexible Salad Nicoise, like this one from Sara Moulton. Starting out tonight, that's about all I knew.

As is typical for me, I'll get an idea on how to veganize a recipe that matches ingredients on hand. Looking at the link above it was easy enough -- skip the eggs and the tuna.
Vegan Salad Nicoise
Serves 4

1/2c Nicoise olives, halved
1c cherry tomatoes, halved
3-6 new potatoes, chopped into bite-sized pieces (~1c total)
2c green beans, trimmed
2-4T capers, to taste
6c mixed greens
Dijon mustard based vinaigrette

Prepare all ingredients (mis en place). Blanch the new potatoes and the green beans; both should be tender crisp, not mushy. Toss remaining ingredients with the vinaigrette and top with potatoes and green beans. Enjoy!
Sean topped his salad with sardine-wrapped capers and flaked tuna. Fantastique!
