Recipe Thursday: A Classic Southern France Summer Dish


Salade Niçoise is one of the great summer dishes of Southern France. It fits right into the picturesque setting of a sunny, coastal Mediterranean lunch with a bottle of crisp white wine and a vibrant table setting that reflects the nearby sea. A true Salade Niçoise should not have any cooked vegetables or lettuce in it, although most versions we see here in the States have boiled new potatoes and blanched haricot verts. For a more authentic take, check out David Lebovitz’s classic version.

Remember the white wine we envisioned in our picturesque coastal Mediterranean lunch? Nothing could be more quintessential than a wine hailing from the heart of Southern France:  Provence. Look no further than The Chateau Revelette Provence Blanc, a beautifully bright and aromatic white that is a refreshing companion with the varied textures and bright flavors of the Salade Niçoise.
