From the Test Kitchen

Originally a simple dish of the southern French countryside, Niçoise salad today showcases a bevy of fresh produce (like tender potatoes) alongside traditional Niçoise olives and hard-boiled eggs. We’re giving it a seasonal vegetarian twist by adding sweet peppers, summer squash, and roasted potatoes—all tossed with baby greens in a creamy, tangy dressing. Instead of hard-boiled, a fried egg on top adds a final layer of satisfying flavor. (Chefs, your summer squash may be green or grey zucchini, or yellow squash.)
