This Summer Nicoise Salad Platter is the perfect thing to make for a crowd. It’s a pick your own salad adventure!
Nicoise Salad is my most favorite salad to make. It’s full of protein and the variety of textures is magical on the pallet. It’s also one of the best salads to serve on a platter, because it has so many components. It spreads out in the middle of the table like a dream. Now what do you need to make this platter?
Salmon is my protein of choice here, but you can also use the traditional tuna. Canned or if you can get it fresh and lightly seared Tuna is divine.
Having a variety of leaves makes it for a more colorful plate. Here are some suggestions on what to add to your platter.
Having more veggies to choose from is wonderful in a platter. Quick boil some green beans and asparagus and add some fresh radishes for crunch. Avocado is also a great addition for some healthy fat.
Making the dressing free form makes it easier on you too. Lay out some olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Your guests can just drizzle as much or as little as they please. I also like leaving out some fresh herbs that the can cut to add more flavor to the salad.
Like I said earlier salad platters also dress the table on it’s own with it’s vibrancy and accoutrements. Once it’s out it’s a free for all. Then all you need to do is relax and chill with your guests. Pour that wine and make your own salad.
For other salad ideas you can also try my Crispy Kale Wild Rice Squash Salad or Crispy Kale and Potato Hash with Green Goddess Drizzle.

On a large platter arrange the salmon, eggs, leaves, veggies and herbs. Place the olive oil, vinegar, honey and salt and pepper in the middle of the table. Have your guests serve themselves and relax for the rest of the meal.
