Nicoise Salad with soft cheese


12 baby new potatoes

200g green beans, topped & tailed

4 tuna steaks (approx. 500g)

olive oil for brushing

200g Romaine Heart lettuce

2 tomatoes, cut into wedges

85g pitted black olives, halved

3 tbsp Tracklements Traditional French Dressing

80g Maida Vale

2 hard-boiled eggs, quartered

Black pepper

How to make it

Add a new dimension to your Niçoise salad with soft cheese such as Maida Vale, which has a tangy, punchy flavour and buttery texture.

  • Boil the potatoes and the beans until tender
  • Drain and cool under cold, running water
  • Cut into halves
  • Heat a frying pan until really hot
  • Brush the tuna on each side with olive oil
  • Pan fry for 1 min on each side and then set aside for 2 mins before slicing
  • Rough chop the lettuce and put in a bowl with the tomatoes, olives, potatoes, beans, tuna, parsley and French dressing and toss lightly
  • Add the chunks of Maida Vale, plus the egg slices, season with black pepper

A delicious salad of warm fine green beans and tiny new potatoes with chunks of wonderful organic Bath Soft Cheese as a starter, light lunch or healthy supper.

This is a lovely healthy salad and a great entertaining dish. This tuna salad uses Pong L’Eveque and would also work well using skinless chicken breasts instead of the tuna.

This Vacherin Mont d’Or salad offers a smooth and soft finish with the subtle flavour of the artichoke and the nutty, earthiness of the beetroot.
