  1. It’s beautiful, Eli ! If I may, a true Salade Niçoise does not have green beans, but it has become so common for cooks to make that addition that (let’s say…) it’s kinda tolerated by now (but don’t be offended if purists attack you on that matter!! I am an almost tolerant Niçoise (looool) who finds your salad so pretty that I am ready to tolerate AND accept your twist :)))))
