  • Bring fresh French cuisine to your table with this vegetarian version of Julia Child's salade Nicoise. Meredith Lee/For The HSUS

Serves 6

1 quart (900g) French potato salad
1/2 cup (115g) oil and lemon dressing
1 head of butter lettuce, trimmed, washed, and dried
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds (675g) fresh green beans, blanched and chilled
3 ripe red tomatoes, quartered and seasoned
1/4 cup (60g) black olives
1-2 tablespoons capers, rinsed

Prepare the French potato salad and the oil and lemon dressing.

Line a large platter with the lettuce leaves, and place a generous amount of the French potato salad in the center of the leaves.

Toss the green beans in a mixing bowl with a little dressing. Arrange the beans on top of the lettuce leaves at intervals.

Arrange the tomatoes on the salad, and scatter the olives and capers as desired.

Spoon the dressing over the salad and serve immediately.
