If Chrissy Teigen is nearby, some kind of Niçoise salad situation ain’t too far behind. I’ve got a real one in a bowl in Hungry For More, but this sammie takes all its best elements (seared fresh tuna, hard-boiled eggs, and cooked potato slices) and puts you in charge of the assembly. Use my aïoli or hey, even my Caesar dressing and you will find yourself saying merçi to this recipe.
4 small or 2 medium potatoes, scrubbed
a 1-pound tuna steak
4 individual-sized baguettes
1 recipe Aïoli or store-bought mayonnaise
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Tender romaine or butter lettuce leaves
Store-bought olive tapenade
Store-bought sun-dried tomato spread
Do you think “sandwich” sounds as exotic to Spanish people as “bocadillo” does to us? Cuz they mean the same thing.
Put this sauce on everything!!
Not my first caesar recipe...and definitely not my last.
