Nicolise Recipe

Ingredients:
1/3 head cauliflower
1 bag (1 pound) frozen, crosscut green beans, thawed but not cooked
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh parsley, minced
1/4 medium, red onion, diced

1/2 to 3/4 cup vinaigrette dressing
Lettuce (to line the plate)
3 cans (6 ounces each) tuna, drained
6 hard boiled eggs, sliced

Instructions:

Slice your cauliflower quite thin. Put it in a microwave-safe bowl with about 1 tablespoon of water, cover, and cook it for 4 to 5 minutes (just tender)

Combine the green beans, garlic, parsley, onion and olives in a good-size bowl. When the cauliflower is done, add that as well, and pour 1/2 cup of dressing over the whole thing.

Stir well, and stick it in the fridge. Let it marinate for several hours to a day, stirring now and then.

When ready to eat, put a few lettuce leaves on each plate and spoon a mound of the marinated mixture on top. Put the tuna on top and in the middle and surround it with slices of hard boiled egg. Garnish it with olives and drizzle more dressing on top.
