Sunny California Style Nicoise

Here is a link to a recipe to a traditional Nicoise salad, so you can tell the difference.

1 Short can of canned Salmon (tuna works, too)
1/2 Small red onion, diced
1/2 Cup Minced celery
1/2 Roast pepper or pimiento, minced
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sweet pickle relish
1 Tablespoon, mayonaise
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley minced for garnish

1 small tomato, wedged
1 boiled egg, wedged
1 avocado, sliced
Olives or capers for garnish
Salad Greens

  1. Mix up all ingredients (salmon thru parsley). Mix well. Set aside.
  2. For presentation, put a handful of salad greens on bottom. Add a helping of the salmon mixture. Adorn with wedges of tomato, egg and avocado, and sprinkle with a few olives or capers.
