Nicoise Salad






     When you invite your bestie for lunch but haven't been to the store, you get creative with whats in the fridge.  Time to try my hand at an impromptu Nicoise Salad!  Since I had never done this before, I had to add my own twist to the standard fare, but it turned out great.  I hope you will give this one a try and feel free to create your own touch and make it your individualized signature dish!  Plus, I'm going to share how to make my fail proof perfect boiled Egg.  This recipe makes 2, so start thinking of who you want to break bread with next!

Ingredients for two Salads~
1 diced Potato
Olive Oil Cooking Spray, sub with Olive Oil
Romain Lettuce, torn to bite size pieces
1/2 bag Cole Slaw, if desired (I had it so I used it and it was great!)
Baby Carrots, diced
1 jumbo Egg
5oz can of water packed Tuna, drained
1 Tablespoon Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard Dressing, more if desired as Dressing
1 small ripe Avocado
Parmesan, grate desired amount or use pre-grated
Salt and Pepper as desired

     Dice Potato, spray with Olive Oil cooking spray, bake on foil lined cookie sheet at 450 for 45 minutes, stir half way thru.  Meanwhile, shred Romain to bite size pieces and mix with Cole Slaw, divide among two plates.  Top with sliced Baby Carrots.  Add Egg to saucepan, cover with water, set on burner with high heat til boiling, add lid, turn off heat (do not remove pan from burner), set time for 15 minutes, when time is up remove from burner, rinse with cold water, peel, cut in half lengthwise, slice and place on Greens.  Drain can of Tuna, mix with one Tablespoon Honey Mustard, divide between plates and add to Greens.  Dice Avocado and divide between plates.  Add warm roasted Potato's to plates.  Top with freshly grated Parmesan (or pre-grated Parmesan).  Season as desired, and add more Dressing if preferred.  Enjoy!  (...typing this recipe has made me crave another one...heading to the kitchen now!)
