Nicoise Dressing Ingredients:


  1. Mix all ingredients for the fish marinade in a medium bowl and coat fish with it,  marinating for at least  1/2 hour or preferably overnight.
  2. Blanch potatoes and green beans. Cool, set aside.
  3. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  4. Make Nicoise Dressing. Mix all the ingredients together in a medium-size bowl. Add cannellini beans, roasted peppers, capers, olives to the dressing to marinate.
  5. Grill fish over a medium-high grill, and with a metal spatula, carfully flip after 5 minutes, and if needed, lower heat or  move to a cooler spot- or place on foil, or even on a bed of lemon slices, until cooked to your desired done-ness. Set aside and cover lightly with foil.
  6. Assemble the salad. Lay down a hearty bed of greens onto an extra-large platter.  Spoon a little Nicoise Dressing from the bowl to coat the greens -and 1/2 of marinated vegetables over the greens.
  7. Arrange the potatoes and green beans and top with charred fish. Garnish with sliced cherry tomatoes and spoon remaining dressing (depending on the size you may not need all the dressing) and white beans/peppers over top.
  8. Give fish a little squeeze of lemon, cracked pepper to taste
