Salad Nicoise

Servings: 4


4 (8 oz) tuna steaks

1 TBSP olive oil

Arugula salad greens

12 cherry tomatoes, cut in half

14-18 pitted black olives

4 hard-boiled eggs


Dressing Ingredients

½ cup olive oil

2 ½ TBSP lemon juice or vinegar

½ TBSP Dijon mustard


  1. In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil (½ cup), lemon juice or vinegar (2 ½ TBSP) and Dijon mustard (½ TBSP). Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil (1 TBSP) in a large non-stick skillet over high heat. Sear the tuna steaks (8 oz) for 1 minute on each side (for rare) or 2 minutes each side (for medium). Remove pan from heat and set aside.
  3. Place the arugula greens in a large bowl and mix in just enough of the dressing to coat the leaves.
  4. Arrange the arugula on each of 4 plates. Top each with ¼ of the tomatoes and olives. Slice each hard-boiled egg and add around the salad. Slice the tuna steak and place on top of each salad. Drizzle the dressing over the tuna steak before serving.
