Norcal Nicoise Salad

I know I’ve made fun of salads served inwards Mason jars before, but when I was asked to contribute a layered Nicoise to an Allrecipes Easter feature, I straightaway idea of this tragically hip presentation. Also, I didn’t accept a straight-sided, see-through drinking glass bowl to practice the layered salad in.

I dearest a expert Nicoise, too it’s perfect for layering, specially if y’all slice/chop upwardly the ingredients first. Not solely volition your layers travel easier to operate along straight, but chopped salads are ever a pleasance to toss amongst dressing. Speaking of which, I actually enjoyed this avocado spiked French-style vinaigrette, too it paired perfectly amongst the rich, fatty, olive oil-packed tuna. 

Look for something from Kingdom of Spain or Italy, too y’all volition travel impressed amongst how much nicer it is than the materials Charlie too his buddies are pushing. So, whether y’all composed this on a plate, inwards the classic fashion, or follow my lead, too practice the world’s trendiest Nicoise, I actually promise y’all laissez passer on this a endeavour soon. Enjoy!
