Inspired Recipe: Non-Traditional Salad Nicoise
Here’s a non-traditional salad nicoise recipe inspired by Paula McLain’s The Paris Wife. Why?
Because I imagine Hadley would order a salad nicoise on a warm summer afternoon at a Parisian sidewalk cafe while she watches Ernest pore over his latest manuscript.
Unlike a traditional salad Nicoise, in which everything is raw but the eggs, ours features a fair number of cooked vegetables. For a more authentic recipe, check out David Lebovitz’s classic salade Nicoise.
