Salad Nicoise seemed to fit perfectly for the Monaco Grand Prix. Last year we stayed in Nice and travelled to Monaco to watch the grand prix. This delicious and refreshing salad brings back those memories.

Salad Nicoise is one of those recipes that is not set in stone. Some recipes have tuna, some have anchovies and some have both. I’ve seen broad beans instead of green beans and even potatoes added. What is clear is that there is always soft boiled eggs, olives, oily fish, and lettuce leaves. Make up your own with your favourite ingredients, anything goes! Here’s my version.

In Monaco they also serve their salad nicoise in a bun called a Pan Bagnat. Handy for taking to the track to watch the cars go screaming by.  Maybe one for next year?

N.B. A top tip if you are going to the Grand Prix, the track opens up at night and there are awesome parties until the early hours 😉
