The signs of spring are not yet apparent. Channeling warm places, we suggest a classic south of France dish, Salade Niçoise. 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, crudités and lovely french olives; niçoise, nyons and picholines.
A perfect Salmon Niçoise wine paring would be a Provence Rosé, The dry rose’s fruitiness and crisp finish complement the platters’ medley of flavors and textures.
