Meatless Monday is in full effect with this Vegan Salad Nicoise. Inspired by the traditional Salad Nicoise from Nice, France of olives, green beans, and potatoes this version leaves off the tuna but is still packed with much flavor. I’ve made it twice now and it has been a hit with friends and family.
