This Vegetarian Niçoise Salad is a riff on the traditional recipe, but without any fish! Featuring green beans, potatoes, and eggs, it's an easy and healthy salad that's simplicity at its best.
While the potatoes are cooking you can hard boil your eggs. For this recipe I like the eggs just slightly under done, so I'd stop at the 7 minute mark rather than 9. Run the eggs under cold water to stop cooking, then peel and quarter them.
Arrange the lettuce, potatoes, beans, tomato, and eggs on a platter or on individual plates. Scatter some olives and torn basil leaves over the top. Drizzle the dressing over the top, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve.
