Salade Niçoise

Easy and healthy:  what’s not to like?

Boil some green beans for about 20 minutes.  I like them good and soft.

Boil 4 large eggs for up to 10 minutes.

Finely slice a red onion, and halve some cherry tomatoes.

Open a tin of flageolet beans.

Here comes the only cooking:  Mix a teaspoon of dijon mustard with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a little seasalt.  Throw in a finely chopped garlic clove and 2 tablespoons of nice vinegar (one of balsamic and one of white wine vinegar works for me).  Whisk together with a fork.

Mix the beans (both sorts) together with the onion, the dressing and a drained can of tuna.  Put into a serving dish and arrange the eggs and tomatoes artistically on top.  Just like in the photo.
