Seared Rare Niçoise Tuna Lettuce Cups

[Photograph: Kerry Saretsky]

This isn't your typical Salade Niçoise! This is a chunky mix of herbes de Provence-seared rare tuna steak and marinated white anchovies, tossed with crisp haricots verts, juicy baby tomatoes, hearty potatoes, briny black olives and capers, sweet basil, and a lemon-thyme-honey citronette with that Provençal perennial: extra virgin olive oil. Spooned into lettuce cups and devoured like tacos, this is a hearty, bright, light-hearted take on a seaside classic.
