When I first saw French Nicoise Salad on menus at restaurants or online I wasn’t too excited about it. There were ingredients I don’t like, it seemed complicated and there are plenty of other salads to try that actually sound yummy.
But, when our Raddish Kids box with the French theme arrived and we tried their version, I was hooked, and so were my kids. Even my son who hates lettuce declared it yummy!
One of the best parts of this easy Nicoise salad is that my kids can literally make the whole thing without me–well, almost; they still need help with the can opener.
Let’s get started with our easy Nicoise salad that kids can make, shall we?
Start by slicing your tomatoes into quarters or eighths, whichever size you prefer.
Peel your hard boiled eggs. You can find our tutorial for making perfect hard boiled eggs in this post.
Open the can of olives and white beans and drain them both.
Slice the olives and set aside. You can slice them however you like them best. We sometimes do many slices, just in half, width wise or length wise.
Chop your lettuce into bite sized pieces. We use romaine and spinach or spring mix. Any lettuce that you prefer will do. Add to a bowl and set aside.
Once all of the ingredients are chopped, mix up the dressing. Add 2 Tablespoons of the dressing to the lettuce mixture.
Arrange all of the ingredients on a serving tray. We like to do it all in a line. Then drizzle the remaining dressing over the salad ingredients and serve!
We never have left overs with this one because it’s soooo good! The secret is the dressing. We never buy dressing from the store because it’s so easy to make quickly at home, and this is our go to recipe.
And there you have it, easy Nicoise Salad that kids can make that will become a quick easy meal for your family.
