Tuna Nicoise Salad 

I am living for this tuna nicoise salad: filled with all types of vegetables, and tossed with a homemade herby, mustard, vinaigrette. It’s easy, simple, quick to whip up and just perfect. 

I love the addition of flakey tuna for extra protein and soft boiled eggs, just a dream! 

Here’s what you need

First you’ll need your main protein: albacore in water. My favorite is​ ​Bumble Bee® Solid White​ ​Albacore in Water.

Second, jammy eggs are a MUST. If you prefer, you can definitely do hard boiled. I love the creaminess of the yolks in this salad. 

Third, loads of veg, like green beans, potatoes, radish, tomatoes, herbs and lettuce.

For the Herb Mustard Vinaigrette 

Dijon, dried parsley, dried oregano, dried basil, sherry vinegar, oil, garlic and salt and pepper. It’s that simple. I love using dried herbs for this because I know I’ll always have the items in my pantry.

It’s SO easy to meal prep. You  can blanch and steam everything beforehand, then just assemble when you’re ready to eat.

For the Salad

  • 1 cup green beans blanched
  • 1 cup baby potatoes sliced in half and steamed
  • 2 soft boiled jammy eggs
  • 1 5 oz can Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore in Water
  • 4 radishes thinly sliced or quartered
  • 3 medium sized tomatoes quartered
  • 2-3 little gems or 1 head of butter lettuce
  • Top with: dill tarragon, chives, lemon squeeze

Herb Mustard Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons dijon I’m using seeded dijon, but regular works too
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1/8 th cup olive oil
  • 1 finely minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Begin by making your dressing by mixing everything together with either a whisk or blender. Set aside.
  • Blanch your green beans, potatoes and make your eggs. (I prefer mine 6 minutes boiled for jammy, but you can always hard boil them if you prefer). Prep and wash the rest of your vegetables.
  • Remove your tuna from the can and flake. You could also use a Bumble Bee® Albacore in Water pouch if you do not have or feel like breaking out the can opener.
  • In a large platter or bowl, toss your green beans, potatoes,, tuna, radish, tomatoes, lettuce and toss with your dressing. Top with your eggs, herbs and a lemon squeeze. Do another light toss (to not ruin the eggs) and serve!
