Tuna Nicoise Salad
I made this salad back when I was still working in a hotel. One of my Sous Chef also my mentor taught me how to prepare this salad and some of the salad I post to my blogs. This salad also one of my favorite that I made because of on how to prepare and present it. For me, it looks very gorgeous.This is a salad that is very good to the eyes and very appetizing for the tongue especially if you like tuna and veggies. This salad is consists of a seared tuna seasoned with salt and pepper wrapped with roasted sesame seed. For the salad, julliene slice of iceberg lettuce,cherry tomatoes that cut into half,green beans(blanched) and boiled quail eggs. For the presentation, arrange the salad in a Martini glass with the seared tuna and the other ingredients. And a Balsamic Vinaigrette for the dressing.
Tip: If you were going to eat or prepare a salad I suggest that put the dressing on the side or just pour the dressing i you already going to eat the salad.So that, the salad still crunchy especially the veggies.=)
