Nicoise Salad

I just love when people share their special family recipes! This was a recipe from Anne Groves. We celebrated Finland for our family culture night last month and Anne, being from Finland came over with her family and shared her culture with us, music, books, pictures, chocolate, oh my, sweet bread, yes please, and all kinds of amazing fun things. This salad is a new favorite for our family!

Nicoise Salad:

Lettuce, shredded (I used spinach)
Italian salad dressing mix (Good Season Brand), plus ingredients to make it
4 or 5 boiled potatoes
Green beans (I used fresh long beans)
Tuna (or salmon)
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/4 cup Parsley, chopped
1/4 cup Green onions, chopped
1/2 cup-1 cup cherry tomatoes

Boil potatoes in the skin. When finished boiling (just fork tender, do not let it get mushy), remove skin, slice rounds, and marinate in salad dressing. Cook/Steam your green beans and marinate with potatoes. Refrigerate for atleast 30 minutes. Lay out your lettuce on a large platter, place marinated potato slices and green beans on top. Then lay your chopped eggs and tomatoes on top, fish on top of that and sprinkle with parsley and green onions and drizzle salad dressing over the top.
