This gastronomic flagship of the County of Nice results from a long oral tradition (hence the fact that there is no standard recipe). The principle is to associate products (uncooked) that are grown in this specific region.

This salade niçoise will emulate. Adopted throughout Provence, it will be adopted also by the cards of the breweries of the whole France, where its execution remains random. In addition to vegetables, there are boiled eggs and anchovy fillets. Very often tuna is added. Seasoning with vinaigrette is a relatively recent practice and the presence of potatoes is totally prohibited, as well as that of the unfortunate green beans!
