No-cook Summer Supper: Salade Niçoise

When it's too hot to cook, but you want to enjoy an easy-to-prepare meal at home, try making a salade niçoise. Having originated in Nice, France, the salad is traditionally composed of tomatoes, Niçoise olives, anchovies and hard-boiled eggs. Tuna, potatoes and green beans are frequently added.

My spin on a salad niçoise one Sunday recently included: canned tuna in olive oil, mixed olives, green beans, tomatoes, snow peas, marinated artichoke hearts, small red peppers (we refer to them as Peppadews, which I learned here is a brand name), hard-boiled eggs and feta cheese, all on a bed of Bibb lettuce. I drizzled some balsamic vinaigrette over the salad, and voila, dinner was served.

To make this simple supper even easier to make, I bought hard-boiled eggs at the grocery and left the green veggies raw. We enjoyed a refreshing pinot grigio with the salad and ate out on the porch. It was a bit toasty, and the flies were a nuisance, but sometimes that's what we have to deal with when dining outdoors.

What are your favorite no-cook summer meals? Do share!
