The only thing better than being crafty...

Monday, September 22, 2008 going home to family, gardens, and delicious food. It's absolutely delicious (healthiness is an added bonus). A great way to showcase fresh (esp. homegrown) veggies. Lettuce/Garden greens and red onion dressed with balsamic vinaigrette, topped with tuna steak and surrounded by garden green beans, baby potatoes, fresh-picked tomato, and sliced hard-boiled egg.

Nicoise Salad:
Red onion
Green beans
Baby potatoes
Sliced tomato

It might look complicated to cook all those veggies for one meal, but you only need one pot of boiling water. Blanche the beans first and remove, then drop the potatoes and eggs (gently) into the same pot. Place dressed greens in the center, and veggies/eggs around. If you've got an extra pair of hands, get one to prep the salad while the tuna cooks. The tuna could be seared, grilled, or even pan-fried; just rub on a little olive oil, salt and pepper before throwing it on the heat. Or get creative and use a dry seafood rub. Anything goes! Make it yours and make it delicious. Finally, place the tuna on top and enjoy!
