As a teen, I lived in Nice, France for a summer. Thus began my love affair with Salade Niçoise. As I contemplate becoming a total vegetarian, instead of the infrequent seafood-eating kind, I must admit my love for spicy-tuna sushi and baked salmon. If anyone has any suggestions for making the pescatarian-to-vegetarian transition, please chime in! The green beans and tomatoes were delicious, and while I almost never eat eggs, they were cooked well. On this particular sunny Saturday, as I sat on the balcony at at French restaurant in midtown, this vitamin-rich, protein-packet salad was almost perfection.
