A mixed vegetable salad, with tomatoes, and hard-boiled eggs.

In summer on the Italian and French Rivieras, colourful salads are present everywhere. In France this type is known as niçoise; on our side of the border we call it «condijun» (pronounced Con-dee-djoon).

Ingredients

2 potatoes 400 g
1 1/3 cup green/snap beans 130 g
2 carrots 200 g
2 zucchini 260 g
2 tomatoes 240 g
2 eggs size large
85 mL Classic Vinaigrette 1/3 cup
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: peel the potatoes and cut them in half; peel the carrots and cut them into large chunks; leave the zucchini whole; trim the ends of the green beans. Place the vegetables in a steamer basket or in a pot of salted water to either boil or steam for about 15 min.
  2. Let them cool down about 10 min or longer, so they won't be so hot to handle. Coarsely dice the vegetables into bite-size pieces and put them in a salad bowl. Chop the tomatoes and add them to the bowl.
  3. While the vegetables are cooking, boil the eggs for about 10 min, cool them down immediately in cold water, dice them, then add the dice to the vegetables.
  4. Pour the classic vinaigrette over the salad, add salt and pepper to taste, then toss. Allow to stand 15 min before serving.
