I am a cheater. That is all. ;) I bought ingredients for this lovely salad and have only cooked once this week. I made homemade mac and cheese Monday night and we have eaten leftovers from that a couple of times, Bobby and the kids made some pasta sides, and we ate out once. I am going to Girl Scout camp in less than an hour so I took my son and went downtown to have lunch with my hubs. We went to Blackstone Brewery (they have a great kids menu that includes m & m's and homemade applesauce). I happened to see that Black Olive Salad Nicoise was on the menu and included all of the ingredients in Dorie's recipe except anchovies. They let me sub sliced chicken for the grilled tuna and I was in business. As soon as my salad arrived I whisked it off of our dark table to a table with natural light that I had been eyeing since we had been seated. The caper vinaigrette was a perfect complement to all of the ingredients in this dish. You might notice no eggs in the first picture. I noticed too after I took the picture and requested them for later. So, I still ate Salad Nicoise today, I just didn't make it myself!
