If we had to talk about a salad of incredible freshness, with history and, in addition, great for its composition of ingredients and variety of flavors, surely we should refer to the great classic of the world of salads: the Nicoise, without place to doubts, a light dish ideal for lunch or some of our dinners
With roots in the great city of Nice, the Nicoise salad is a classic of French cuisine that, in my opinion, has endured and will persist over time.
The Niçoise salad, sometimes also called Salade Niçoise or Insalata gizzard, is a type of salad famous worldwide that comes from the Cote D’Azur region of France and was originally conceived in the city of Nice.
The salad or “salade” is mounted on a flat plate or disk and is a combination of various elements in a bed of vegetables, which became popular in the Montpelier Region in the 1880s.
Vegetables, such as tomatoes, red peppers, onions or lettuce, are prepared individually and then combined with other ingredients such as cooked potatoes or beans, as well as boiled egg wedges, tuna in oil and olives.
The salad is served with the traditional Dijon vinaigrette.
The original version of the salad did not include red peppers or onions and was made with artichoke hearts, never with potatoes.
According to legends, there are those who say that the famous choreographer Balanchine may have influenced the creation of this dish during his stay in Monte Carlo, while others claim that it is a Provencal dish.
The salad became famous in North America by chef Julia Child.
