Sunday Brunch: Salade Niçoise

Editor's note: Each Saturday morning we bring you a Sunday Brunch recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.

The essential trick to making a good salad Niçoise is to cook then thoroughly chill the potatoes, eggs and green beans, then to dress all the elements of the salad separately. If all the elements are assembled, then the dressing simply poured over that salad loses a lot of what gives it the refined depth of a good salad Niçoise. A good loaf of crusty bread and a nice bottle of wine round out this meal perfectly.
