Many years ago, in a resort in the south of France about this time of year, we ate at a beach restaurant among the bare-except-for-a-bikini-bottom women and other assorted "types." We had Salade Nicoise and a whole bottle of wine (bad, bad) and it was altogether lovely.
It was the first time I had boiled potatoes with Salade Nicoise, and they made a tasty addition. Mine contains tomatoes, tuna (natch!) olives, potatoes, green beans, hard cooked eggs, and a soupcon of red onion, of all on a bed of lettuce. It feeds the eye as well as the stomach.
