Arranged salads are so cool!

Lee

Imported tuna (I like the stuff that comes in a glass jar from Italy)
Boiled Yukon Gold potatoes
Green beans (I can't easily get haricots verts)
Hard boiled egg
Nicoise olives
Tomatoes
Green onions
Bed of lettuce

Dijon vinagrette


WOW! That looks so appetizing.

that was exactly going to be my comment, lightly cooked eggs add a creaminess and heartiness

That's what I made for DH's birthday dinner this week - used seared salmon instead of tuna. Sorry I didn't take a picture...had company, so there just wan't a chance. Seems a little peculiar to say to hungry people, "Wait! have to take a picture!" But everyone loved it; it was a big hit. Made a dressing with EVOO, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, tiny bit of sugar. Very mild and good.
