My only other activity today was to make this:
Vegetarian Salad Niçoise:
- scrub, halve or quarter, & steam 1lb new potatoes 10-15 minutes, and blanch in cold water;
- trim, steam (5min) & blanch 2c green beans;
- fine-chop 1/4c red onion
- seed & slice 1 cucumber
- halve 12-16 pitted kalamata olives
- chop 1/2 c. fresh dill
Toss all of these together, then add dressing:
Mix 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard with 1-2 Tbsp. good olive oil,** then add 1/2 tsp @ salt, and honey or agave syrup, 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice, and pepper to taste.
Toss dressing with salad, and chill 1hr.
If you're not a vegan, then finish w/boiled egg wedges; if you're not vegetarian, add slices of seared ahi, perhaps with a bit more pepper.
**Mixing these two ingredients together first should keep the olive oil from separating from the rest of the dressing.
