    Default Green bean salad with nicoise vinaigrette

    Yum. One of my faves. You can also used canned tuna, but it's not as good.

    Green Bean Salad

    * 1 lb. new red potato, unpeeled
    * 1 lb. green beans, trimmed
    * 1 1/2 lb. fresh tuna, fillet, sliced 1/4-inch thick, (or 3 cans white tuna packed in water)
    * 5 plum tomato, cut into sixths
    * 1/2 small red onion, sliced
    * hard-cooked egg, quartered

    Nicoise Vinaigrette

    * 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    * 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
    * 1 clove garlic, minced
    * 2 tsp anchovy paste
    * 1/4 tsp salt
    * 1/4 tsp pepper
    * 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

    Green Bean Salad

    1. In pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes for 10 to 15 minutes or just until tender.
    2. Remove with slotted spoon; let cool slightly. Quarter and set aside.
    3. In same pot, cook green beans for 5 to 7 minutes or until tender crisp.
    4. Drain; refresh under cold running water.
    5. On greased grill, cook tuna for 3-4 minutes, turning once and basting with reserved dressing.
    6. Remove from grill and tent with foil to keep warm.

    Nicoise Vinaigrette

    1. In bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, garlic, anchovy paste, salt and pepper.
    2. Gradually whisk in oil.
    3. Set 2 tablespoons (25 mL) aside.

    1. On big serving platter arrange mounds of potatoes, green beans, quarters of tomatoes, eggs, red onion and olives.
    2. Fan tuna in centre of plate.
    3. Drizzle remaining dressing over top.
