This easy Nicoise Salad includes tuna in extra virgin olive oil, fingerling potatoes, soft-boiled eggs, salty olives, fresh green beans, and a simple vinaigrette.


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 10 ounces fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes
  • 6 cups greens (romaine, butter lettuce, and/or arugula)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted olives
  • 4 StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.® Tuna Pouches (10.4 ounces total)
  • 1 large cucumber, sliced, optional
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh basil, optional
  • 1/4 cup capers, optional
  • 1/4 cup sliced raw or pickled red onions, optional
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. In a mason jar, combine the olive oil, Dijon, lemon juice, and honey. Season with sea salt and pepper and shake vigorously to combine and emulsify. Set aside.
  3. Carefully add the eggs to the boiling water and boil 7 minutes for a soft-boiled egg. Remove the eggs using a slotted spoon and cool under cold running water. Halve when cool.
  4. Add the green beans and potatoes to the boiling water. Cook the green beans until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes, and transfer into an ice bath. Cook the potatoes until fork-tender, 12-15 minutes, and transfer to the ice bath. Slice the potatoes in half once cooled.
  5. Assemble the salad. Fill a large bowl with salad greens. On top of the greens, arrange the eggs, green beans, potatoes, olives, tuna, and optional ingredients (if using).
  6. Drizzle the lemon vinaigrette over the entire salad and season with sea salt and pepper. Enjoy!
