Authentic Salade Nicoise

“This is the recipe that is considered authentique by Capelina d'or and sian d'aqui, 2 associations that promote authentique Nice cooking. To all of those who consider beans and cooked potatoes a basic of this salad, I have to tell you that this is an invention of the famous chef Auguste Escoffier. A traditional salade nicoise does not contain cooked foods appart from hard boiled eggs. Originally it was a plain tomato salad with anchovies and onions and developped from there.”
