Dukan Style Nicoise Salad

  • 1 bag of mixed leaves salad
  • 2 small salad tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 large can of tuna in brine (185g)
  • 1/2 butternut squash (optional)
  • a handful of green beans, fresh or frozen
  • a drizzle of balsamic vinegar

 

  1. (Optional step) If you are adding the butternut squash to the salad, pre-heat the oven to 180C degrees. Remove the skin, cut into cubes and place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Spray with low fat cooking spray and cook in a pre-heated oven for approximately 40 minutes until soft
  2. Cook the green beans in a food steamer according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The reason why I recommend steaming the beans is that this will ensure that fewer vitamins and nutrients are lost in the water compared to boiling. Alternatively, boil them in hot water or cook in the microwave until soft but still crunchy
  3. While the green beans are cooking, hard-boil the eggs by cooking then in boiling water for approximately 10 minutes
  4. Once the eggs are ready and the green beans have had the time to cool down then you can start putting together your salad. Start by placing the salad on a plate, add the tomatoes, the butternut squash and the green beans
  5. Quarter the eggs lengthwise, place on top of the salad and top with the drained tuna
  6. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and enjoy!
