Salade Nicoise

Damien Pignolet joins Guillaume Brahimi and shares a delicious French salad.


  • Vinaigrette


  • 1.

    Rub the inside of a bowl with the garlic and discard the debris. Add the vinaigrette ingredients and whisk together, adding enough vinegar to make it taste slightly sharp.

  • 2.

    Cut the tomatoes into 4 or 6 wedges, depending on size. Cut the pepper in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and white pitch before cutting into 5mm strips.

  • 3.

    Separate the lettuce leaves and assemble all the ingredients in a wide salad bowl, adding the drained and flaked tuna, if using. Season to taste.

  • 4.

    Present the bowl of salad and moisten with the vinaigrette at the table. Before serving, toss thoroughly so that the eggs break up – the flavours will only come together if everything is tossed well.
