Bring a taste of France to your next summer dinner party. The classic Tuna Nicoise Salad comes from Nice, which is a gorgeous city in France located along the French Riviera.

Generally, the salad is made from a tasty mixture of green beans, fresh croutons, basil, olives, hard-boiled eggs, and tomatoes, all covered in a delicious dressing. It is always made with tuna or anchovies, but not both. See how Jamie Oliver makes it below!
