Preparation of Salad Nicoise With Tuna:
Number one you must blanch the top and tailed beans in boiling water, and then refresh.
Boil the potatoes in water, and then allow them to cool. Once cool you can remove the potato skins and then cut them into wedges.
Slice the tomatoes into wedges and slice the red onions into rings on a meat slicer. Wash up the lettuce and then cut it into thick slices to be placed onto a pasta plate.
After placing the sliced lettuce on the plate, neatly layer on the potatoes, tomato wedges, beans, pitted olives, sliced red onions, peeled and quartered boiled egg, and julienne anchovies. Next, drain the tuna in brine and place it evenly over the salad.
All that’s left is to dress the salad with the salad dressing and then season it with salt and pepper.
Serve the salad with fresh baguette.
