Nicoise Salad

Make on Drop
Serves 4-6 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:

This is the perfect salad to package up into small containers and take with you practically anywhere. Straight from Portable Lunches (Insiders you are all over that one!!) it can now be added to your Menu Builder. I am expecting big and very organised things for your lunches this year, as reluctantly we all get back into the swing of it. Is it just me or is anyone else feeling like Christmas/summer/holidays, came and went way too quickly? I am struggling to get back into the routine of life. Maybe I should retire. I can see me doing practically nothing on a beach somewhere...well, for two weeks maybe.
