Salad Nicoise

Saveur did a great article called “A Road To Paradise.”  The author followed route 7, “France’s most legendary road” from Lyon to Provence with her kids! and husband.  What a brave woman!  It reminded me of a road trip Matthew and I took through Provence staying in bed and breakfasts (minus the kids!) seeing the beautiful countryside and eating some incredible food.

To make the salad niçoise (I don’t want to tell you how much time I spent trying to get the cedilla to work, Yes I know it’s alt + 135!) I needed salt anchovies which  I’ve been looking for for months.  Fox & Obel stopped carrying them to my dismay.  I went onto Amazon but couldn’t find the brand I was accustom to so I tried a new one, pictured below.  They are wonderful! A little firmer then the ones I had been buying and saltier.  I’m happy with them but I do have a lot!  I can only hope they hold up well.

I made the niçoise for Matthew and me before he left for his European tour and it was fabulous.  It’s been so hot here this summer that salad is about all you can eat without falling asleep.  Anyway it’s been a while since I posted anything and I’m trying to get back in the swing of things, so this is short but sweet. Below anchovies I got on Amazon, salad dressing and Salad Nicoise!
