salade composee

one of my favorite, favorite things to eat in the spring and summer is a “salade composee.” basically that’s a fancy french term for a salad that is laid out prettily, rather than tossed like a house salad.

think salade nicoise.

first, i made vinaigrette with garlic oil and champagne-pear vinegar, a little salt and pepper, and tossed my baby greens in it, and put it in two bowls.

now go to town with whatever toppings you’d like!

for this one, i used hard boiled egg, avocado, tomato, three different colors of boiled potatoes, blanched green beans, blackened rounds of eggplant, and anchovy fillets. everything should be cold or at room temperature, but what you include is up to you.

i don’t add more dressing on top, but you can if you’d like. or serve some extra dressing on side.

it is so good – and so healthy.
