I initially posted this a number of years in the past, however it’s one in all our favorites so I believed it deserved an replace.
I used to name this Niçoise Pasta Salad however as no self-respecting Niçois would break so removed from custom I made a decision to vary the title.
A correct Salade Niçoise would have the small, black Niçoise olives and be served on a mattress of lettuce.
Whereas there could also be arguments as as to if the inexperienced beans are cooked or uncooked, anchovies added or not, potatoes used or not, I doubt that pasta would ever be thought of.
There received’t be an argument over the tuna – aside from which is the very best canned tuna.
Salade Niçoise all the time makes use of canned, by no means contemporary. (Okay – some locations are attempting for Instagram likes and will use contemporary….)

Final week I observed that a few of the timber are turning shade already…. That was July thirtieth.
Tuesday on our bike journey (August 2) I noticed this:
This appears extra like late September reasonably than early August – besides that if it was Sept. the leaves could be extra colourful.
These have been simply brown and the leaves on the timber have been pale inexperienced / yellow.
We’re in the course of the worst drought ever however these timber are on the canal.
The canal is low – nonetheless….
Perhaps it’s the third warmth wave that’s doing it.
Regardless of the cause – it made me unhappy to see extra proof of our future.
