From the Test Kitchen

This bright, robust salad puts a seasonal spin on the delectable flavors of a Provençal favorite, “salade Niçoise.” Alongside the traditional combination of briny olives, creamy potatoes and crisp green beans, we’re adding seasonal juicy tomato and sweet peppers (which can be green, yellow, orange or red)—all wrapped in a tangy mustard vinaigrette. We’re topping it off with classic hard-boiled eggs and for a twist, a bit of sweet, anise-like tarragon.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat 1 medium pot and 1 small pot of salted water to boiling on high. Peel the shallot and mince to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra); place in a bowl with the vinegar. Snap off and discard the stem ends of the greens beans. Quarter the potatoes. Cut off and discard the root end of the romaine; roughly chop the leaves. Cut out and discard the stems, ribs and seeds of the peppers; cut into ¼-inch-thick rings. Core the tomato: cut into 8 wedges. Cut off and discard the ends of the radishes; thinly slice into rounds. Pick the tarragon leaves off the stems; discard the stems.
