Salade niçoise (French pronunciation: ​[ni' swaz]) is traditionally presented as a composed salad of tomatoes, tuna, hard-boiled eggs, olives, and anchovies, dressed with a vinaigrette. The Gousto version uses our locally sourced British mackerel and a punchy vinaigrette for a hearty and healthy dinner salad. Nice-oise!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Smoked Mackerel Niçoise

Boil a kettle

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into large, bite-size pieces 

Trim the green beans

2 Smoked Mackerel Niçoise

Add the potatoes to a pot of salted boiling water and cook for 10 min or until almost fork-tender

Meanwhile, add the egg[s] to another pot of salted water, bring to the boil and cook for 8 min

Once done, cool the egg[s] by running them under cold water

Tip: cooling the eggs completely makes them easier to peel!

3 Smoked Mackerel Niçoise

Meanwhile, chop the olives roughly

Cut tomato[es] into wedges, then cut them in half 

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

4 Smoked Mackerel Niçoise

Combine the garlic, red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard with 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] olive oil  and a pinch of salt and pepper - this is your dressing 

5 Smoked Mackerel Niçoise

Add the green beans to the potatoes, cover and remove from the heat

Leave the pot off the heat for 4 min or until the potatoes are cooked and the beans are bright green and al dente (retaining a bite)

Drain and return the potatoes and beans back to the pot, off the heat

6 Smoked Mackerel Niçoise

Add a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper to the potatoes and beans and give everything a gentle mix

Peel and quarter the cooled egg[s]

7 Smoked Mackerel Niçoise

Chop the little gem lettuce into bite-size pieces
