If you've been reading my blog at all you know I love roasted vegetables. I decided to make Salad Nicoise last night and realized I could roast all the vegetables together! Well, of course it was easy and delicious. So here is my slightly revised Salad Nicoise.
Roasted Vegetable Salad Nicoise
2 small cans of tuna packed in olive oil from Italy, drained
6-8 small red potatoes, halved or quartered into bite size pieces
several handfuls of green beans, trimmed and snapped
1 small jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and cut into pieces
1 pint assorted cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered into bite size pieces
2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
kosher salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375-400 degrees. Toss all the vegetables together and drizzle with olive oil on jelly roll pan. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 20 minutes. Check your vegetables, stir and spin pan in oven if necessary. Cook another 15 minutes and repeat until vegetables are soft and browned.
Toss vegetables with tuna and season with more olive oil, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
