Veggie Nicoise Salad

For Tuesday’s SCL dinner (in addition to the macaroons), we had a nicoise salad.  I wanted to do something a little more elaborate since we had a simple ‘Fresh’ Pea Soup to go with it.  I found this recipe in Taste of Home the April/May 2012 issue.

Salad:

  • 1 lb. small red potatoes, boiled and halved
  • 1 lb. asparagus

Boil potatoes and when still warm, pour a few tablespoons of the dressing over the potatoes.  Blanche the asparagus and green beans.  Arrange salad ingredients over the romaine and serve with dressing.
