For The Salad:
  • 1 pound arugula
  • pinch kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound red radishes
  • 2 teaspoons avocado or olive oil
  • 1/2 pound haricot vert blanched
  • 1/2 pound cherry tomatoes halved
  • 4 hard boiled eggs halved
  • 40 Nicoise olives
  • 1 large about 15 ounces ounces can Wild Alaskan Salmon, drained
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced (optional)
For The Dressing:
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Herbs de Provence
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • pinch freshly ground black pepper
To Prepare:
  1. You can do most of the prep work (make dressing, hard boil eggs, blanch green beans, roast radishes) 1 to 2 days ahead of time but here are directions in real time.

  2. Preheat oven to 450F.
  3. Trim ends of radishes and quarter. Toss with avocado oil and a pinch of salt. Place onto a baking sheet and roast for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once. Remove and allow to cool.
  4. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. At the same time, set up a large ice bath (pot or bowl with ice and cold water) in or next to the sink.
  5. Once boiling, drop in haricot vert for 1 minute. Drain and then toss drained green beans into ice bath to chill, stop the cooking and set the color. After a few minutes (when they are totally chilled), drain and set aside.
  6. Mix all ingredients for dressing into a glass jar with a lid and shake until well combined.
  7. To assemble the salad, sprinkle the arugula with a bit of salt and pepper and toss with half of the dressing.
  8. Layer the radishes, haricot vert, tomatoes, eggs, olives and drained salmon. Finish with remaining dressing and a sprinkle of sliced green onions. Serve and Enjoy!
