Salad Nicoise is a classic for a reason and that reason is simple – it’s a damn good salad. Now, I choose not to eat the traditional version with eggs and fish, so I made my own vegan take instead. A vegan Nicoise salad still has some of the key ingredients like green beans and olives as well as a kick ass vinaigrette. To replace the missing ingredients I added some roasted new potatoes and chickpeas which are delicious of course, and happen to be great for satiation. This means that this vegan salad makes a great main dish much like its traditional counterpart. Enjoy this colourful plate on a warm summer’s day – you won’t regret it!
