All the classic flavors of a Nicoise salad, plus pasta to keep you satisfied. This recipe uses just one saucepan so there’s minimal cleanup. You could use two pots to make things happen a little faster but that’s up to you: pick your battles. Look for tuna packed in oil, it has a lot more flavor. And while you could drain it and discard the oil, we recommend you use it for the dressing. Just add a little extra virgin olive oil if you come up short. Because this salad already has a bunch of deliciously salty ingredients—olives, pickled green beans, tuna—a splash of soy sauce (or gluten free tamari) adds an unexpected salinity to the dressing.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove pasta, and reserve cooking water in pan. Add potatoes and bring to a simmer over medium-high. Cook potatoes until tender, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove potatoes, reserving cooking water in pan. Carefully lower eggs into pan, and return to a simmer. Cook 12 minutes. Remove eggs from pan, and transfer to a bowl of ice water until cool, about 10 minutes. Peel eggs and cut into quarters.

Step 2

Whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, and soy sauce in a large bowl. Add pasta, potatoes, tuna, beans, radishes, olives, parsley, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt and toss to combine. Serve topped with eggs and more parsley.
