Nicoise Salad

www.LivligaHome.com
We tried out another salad from Rocco Dispirito's Now Eat This! cookbook. This time we tried the Nicoise Salad on page 62. I was impressed. It was full of flavor and lots of goodies. The one thing I am used to in a Niciose are quartered potatoes. He eliminated that ingredient altogether. He also made it a healthier version by taking out the yoke of the egg ( I was lazy and kept ours in this round), adding more greens and making the dressing lighter. It was amazingly hearty for only 193 calories. To make it a meal we added a 2 oz slice of French Baguette (130 cal) and a slice of a summer melon (53 cal). It was easy to make which was an added plus on a hot summer night. A repeat!
