Healthy lunch idea: Tuna nicoise salad
The original lunch called for kiwi, but I didn't have any and I had grapes that need to get eaten, so I substituted. The water went really well, but I thought about light lemonade too. Of course, we're in the middle of winter, so this isn't the first thing you think of when coming up with ideas for lunch, but we had a freakishly warm weekend in the 60s, so it was nice and refreshing and helped fuel my run afterwards!
If you're new to the nicoise salad, I definitely recommend giving it a shot. It doesn't seem like potatoes and green beans would be good on a salad with tuna, but it all works together really well. I got a steamer bag of fresh green beans from the produce section of my local supermarket and they microwaved very well. I boiled the potatoes in a small saucepan for a few minutes (until I could jab a fork into them with relative ease). The rest was easy.
Would you eat it?
