Salade Niçoise recipe by Alice Moireau

Think salad is boring? This classic French Niçoise salad is full of flavour and texture, perfect for popping in your lunchbox.

Alice Moireau:

“An exquisite Niçoise salad thanks to Menaica anchovies, an almost legendary fishing technique dating back to the ancient Greeks which consists of fishing anchovies by hand using gill nets called “menaica”. Menaica anchovies are caught in Italy, in the Cilento region, on days with calm seas, only between April and July, at sunset. The fishermen choose only the biggest anchovies which, nervous and fidgety, become agitated and quickly lose most of their blood. The anchovies are then cleaned directly from the entrails and the head, then washed in brine, to finally be placed in traditional terracotta pots, alternating with layers of artisanal sea salt from Trapani.”
