|A restaurant in Paris that serves the Salad Nicoise, as you can see on the|

Well, that may be the case, but it will have been two years ago this month and today was my first attempt at it....and that out of necessity of "N". Vanilla Bean had quickly picked up after the Colonel on "M" and wasn't quite ready to delve into the Norwegian Lefse she had planned and I had the day at my leisure and was able to scrounge around most of the ingredients...so with the return of spring came my tasty Salad Nicoise. I had most of the ingredients I would have liked...but not quite and as I was reluctant to go out...my salad ended up with canned green beans, so I will have to make it again when I have fresh beans as well as spring greens - but my boston lettuce worked out just fine. Strangely enough, I had olives and capers on hand, mostly because i had gotten the ingredients to make the salad before and hadn't gotten to it and used the other items I collected for various other recipes, but these to items still remained waiting for the day I would make my Salad Nicoise.

|A beautiful day to eat on the porch, the snow of last weekend is gone|
and they say by Monday it is to be 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
