The signs of spring are not yet apparent. Channeling warm places, we Â suggest a classic south of France dish, Salade NiÃ§oise. This colourful and beautifully platted fish dish is easy to prepare and is also a crowd pleaser. Perfect for a casual Friday evening or to serve for an impromptu cocktail party. Just add wine or bubbles with fruit juice mixes.
Instead of tuna we choose roasted salmon on a bed of haricot vert [french green beans] with roasted fingerling potatoes and roasted red peppers, garnished with egg wedges, cruditÃ©s and lovely french olives; niÃ§oise, nyons and picholines.
A perfect Salmon NiÃ§oise wine paring would be a Provence RosÃ©, The dry roseâ€™s fruitiness and crisp finish complement the plattersâ€™ medley of flavors and textures.
