From Julia's Kitchen Wisdom, by Julia Child. Of all main-course salads, the Niçoise is my all-time favorite, with its fresh butter-lettuce foundation; its carefully cooked, beautifully green green beans; its colorful contrast of halved hard-boiled eggs, ripe red tomatoes, and black olives; all fortified by chunks of tunafish and freshly opened anchovies. It's a perfect luncheon dish, to my mind, winter, summer, spring, and fall ? an inspired combination that pleases everyone.

Recipe Ingredients for Julia Child's Salade Nicoise

1 butterhead lettuce
1 pound green beans, cooked and refreshed
1 tablespoons minced shallots
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
3 potatoes, peeled, sliced, and cooked
6 ounces tuna
6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved
6 anchovy fillets
1/3 cup olives
3 tablespoons capers
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Recipe Directions for Julia Child's Salade Nicoise

Arrange the lettuce leaves on a large platter or in a shallow bowl. Shortly before serving, toss the beans with the shallots, spoonfuls of vinaigrette, and salt and pepper. Baste the tomatoes with a spoonful of vinaigrette. Place the potatoes in the center of the platter and arrange a mound of beans at either end, with tomatoes and small mounds of tuna at strategic intervals. Ring the platter with halves of hard-boiled eggs, sunny side up, and curl an anchovy on top of each. Spoon more vinaigrette over all; scatter on olives, capers, and parsley, and serve.
