Are you craving that healthy, colorful salad that actually fills you up instead of making you more hungry? Us too! Don't tease yourself with a salad and expect to be full from it unless you fill it with protein and tons of style. So, we've compiled a "go-t0" list for topping on a summer's favorite classic, a Nicoise Salad! Do you have any secret toppings for your salads? Let us know!

Servings: 2 Ingredients: -2 eggs -2 oz. turnip or celery root -5 oz. fresh green beans -2 tbsp olive oil -1 - 2 finely chopped garlic cloves (optional) -5 oz. baby gem lettuce or Romaine lettuce -2 oz. cherry tomatoes -½ red onion -1 can tuna in olive oil -2 oz. olives -salt and pepper

Dressing Ingredients: -½ tbsp Dijon mustard -2 tbsp small capers -½ oz. anchovies -1⁄3 cup olive oil -¼ cup mayonnaise -1 tbsp fresh parsley -½ lemon, the juice -1 minced garlic clove (optional)

Method:

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing using a mixer or an immersion blender until fully combined and creamy. Set aside.
  2. Boil the eggs the way you like them, soft or hard boiled. Place them immediately in ice-cold water when they are done to make them easier to peel. Cut them into wedges.
  3. Wash and peel the turnips. Cut them in half-inch pieces. Wash and trim the green beans and parboil both for 5 minutes in lightly salted water. Use separate pans. Rinse in cold water when done.
  4. Place a skillet on medium high heat and fry the green beans in butter or olive oil. Add finely chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place lettuce on a serving plate or on individual plates. Add tomatoes, onion, drained tuna, eggs, beans, olives and turnip. Serve with dressing on the side.
  6. Enjoy!
