Time 30m

Yield 2 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

8 ounces fingerling potatoes
6 ounces haricot verts
2 Gem or Bibb lettuce hearts, outer leaves removed, quartered
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 hard-boiled eggs, quartered
6 ounces cooked chicken, shredded roughly
1/4 cup Mustard Vinaigrette, recipe follows
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces pitted nicoise olives
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 shallot, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Add the potatoes to a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon (let the water continue to boil) and let cool slightly.
  • Prepare an ice water bath. Add the haricot verts to the boiling water, blanch briefly and transfer to the water bath to stop the cooking process. Drain, then cut into 2-inch pieces. Slice the potatoes 1/4 inch thick.
  • Arrange the lettuce on a platter. Top with separate mounds of the potatoes, haricot verts, tomatoes, eggs and chicken, then drizzle with the Mustard Vinaigrette. Season all with salt and pepper. Garnish with the olives.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic and shallot. Whisk until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.


Chicken Nicoise Salad image

This salad makes it easy to eat what's good for you. It's versatile, so you can use asparagus in place of green beans and salmon instead of tuna, or add garden tomatoes. And if you follow the keto diet, you'll be happy to know this is a keto chicken salad. -Nick Monfre, Oak Ridge, New Jersey

Chicken Breasts Nicoise image

An absolute must when visiting Nice is a visit to the spectacular food market in the old section of the city. Along with seasonal produce, vendors set up incredible displays of olives. Among them are the briny black nicoise olives featured in this recipe. You can find them in specialty food markets or you can substitute Greek kalamata olives, if necessary. In any case, you won't be dissappointed. This is a delicious recipe.
