VEGAN NICOISE SALAD (30 MINUTES!)

This was great! Made this tonight- added some cooked pearl barley to make it a heartier main dish, and it was very tasty. I will keep this recipe to make again!


VEGAN NICOISE SALAD (30 MINUTES!)

A plant-based version of classic Nicoise Salad with smashed chickpea salad in place of tuna. Fresh, satisfying, and ready in 30 minutes.

Ingredients
SALAD

  • 6 small red or yellow potatoes
  • 1 cup green beans or haricot verts (trimmed)
  • 1 head lettuce (chopped // such as butter, green or romaine)
  • 1/2 cup pitted Nicoise, green, or kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup sliced tomato
  • 1/2 medium red beet (optional // finely grated or sliced)

CHICKPEAS

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas (1 15-ounce can equals ~1 1/4 cups cooked beans)
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (or stevia to taste)
  • 1 tsp dried dill (or sub 2 tsp fresh dill per 1 tsp dried)
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp roasted unsalted sunflower seeds

DRESSING

  • 3 Tbsp minced shallot
  • 1 heaping tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme (or sub 1/2 tsp dried thyme per 1 tsp fresh)
  • 1/3 cup white or red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


Instructions

  1. Add potatoes to a small saucepan and add warm water until just covered. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat slightly to medium / medium-high until the water is at a low boil. Cook uncovered for 10-12 minutes, or until completely tender and when picked up with a knife they slide off easily. Then drain thoroughly and let cool on a cutting board. Once slightly cooled, slice into 1/4-inch slices. Set aside.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and bring to a boil. Then add green beans or haricot verts and boil for 2-4 minutes, or until bright green in color and only slightly tender - they should still have slight crunch when bitten. While they're cooking, fill a large mixing bowl with ice water. Once the green beans are done cooking, drain thoroughly and immediately add to the ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain and pat dry - set aside.
