Nicoise Salad:

  • 10 small red potatoes about 1 pound
  • ½ pound fresh green beans or haricot verts ends trimmed
  • 1 5- ounce package Dole Organic Kale Mix
  • 2 5- ounce cans solid white albacore drained and flaked
  • 3 medium tomatoes each cut into 6 wedges
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs quartered lengthwise
  • ½ cup black olives

Honey Mustard Vinaigrette:

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


  • Put potatoes in a steamer basket fitted inside a large pot over 1 inch of boiling water. Cover and steam for 5 minutes. Add the green beans and steam, covered, 10 more minutes. The potatoes should be fork-tender and the green beans should be tender but still crisp. Drain and let them cool.
  • While the potatoes and green beans are cooking, make the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, mustard, honey, salt, pepper, and thyme. Add the olive oil and whisk until combined.
  • On a large platter, arrange the kale mix. Arrange the tuna, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, eggs, and olives over the lettuces. Drizzle with the vinaigrette. Serve!
