4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups potato salad, 3 ounces chicken, and 4 tomato halves)

Niçoise is a French word meaning "as prepared in Nice." In this variation on salade Niçoise, we substituted chicken for tuna and tossed the potatoes with a garlicky vinaigrette.

How to Make It

Step 1

Steam potatoes, covered, 15 minutes or until tender; cool slightly. Place potatoes in a bowl; add wine, stirring gently to coat. Steam green beans, covered, 6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Rinse under cold water; drain and set aside.

Step 2

Preheat the broiler. Combine 2 tablespoons minced shallots, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, and tarragon in a small bowl. Brush shallot mixture over both sides of chicken.

Step 3

Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and broil 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Cool slightly, and cut chicken into 1/2-inch strips. Set aside.

Step 4

Combine 2 tablespoons shallots, 1 tablespoon mustard, vinegar, oil, anchovy paste, and minced garlic in a large bowl. Add potatoes and green beans, and toss gently to coat.

Step 5

Spoon potato salad onto 4 lettuce-lined plates; top each serving with chicken strips and tomato halves. Sprinkle with green onions.
