I’ve often said that laziness, not necessity, is the mother of invention. Need proof in recipe form? I submit my version of Nicoise Salad – which I have just re-named “Can-can Salad.” See if you can figure out why.
4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
2 hard cooked eggs, peeled and sliced
1 6 oz. can tuna, drained
1 8 oz. can french style green beans, drained
1 14 oz. can yuca, drained and chopped
6 nicoise or kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
Evenly divide ingredients between two plates. Serve with your favorite vinagrette.
