I remember the first time I had salade niçoise. I was about twelve or so and working as a busboy at a fancy restaurant in Atlanta called The Bonnie Brooks Farm. It had been just "The Farm" until the new owner bought it from an venerable Atlanta restaurant family, changed the name and installed his wife Bonnie Brooks in the lounge as the main act. Well, actually she was the only act and had been modestly famous in the sixties. This was the early seventies and she was kind of a Petula Clark type. Her husband (whose name I don't recall) was very dashing in that sort of New Jersey mafia don sort of way. Niçoise I Have Known
Meatloaf is fantastic because you can make it on a Sunday in about 20 minutes prep time. The great thing is that you'll have leftovers for the week. This is a great variation on meatloaf with everything in one pan – protein, great carbs and veggies all wrapped up in good fats and great Tuscan seasoning. Serve this with a great side salad and you are set.
I have never met a canned olive that I liked. I was at a restaurant recently and ordered a Salade Nicoise and was presented with a beautifully arranged plate. Gorgeous lettuces, a light vinaigrette, quartered hard cooked eggs, small perfectly boiled potatoes, two thin anchovy filets and grilled tuna. And there sprinkled over the top were canned, sliced black olive slices. Blech! A beautiful salad ruined by less-than-perfect ingredients.
