Salad Haricot Verts, Feta, Basil & Tomatoes

I was inspired by the more traditional French Nicoise Salad for this recipe. However I wanted to create a salad in which there was no fish. Since I love fresh herbs, I replaced the tuna by feta cheese & basil. These two ingredients taste delicious with the tomatoes and haricot verts. You can easily take this salad with you to a picknick or for a to go lunch. Just a few ingredients, easy recipe and great flavors!

Vegetarian Nicoise Salad

Servings 2 servings
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes


  • Cooking pan


  • 1 Little Gem or Romaine lettuce
  • 1 Eggs
  • 200 gram Haricot Verts
  • 10 Cherry Tomatoes
  • ½ Onion
  • 60 gram Feta Cheese
  • 20 Basil Leaves
  • 2 tbsp Vinegar
  • 6 tbsp Walnut Oil


  • Cut the onion in thin slices, take the ends of the haricots verts and cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Let the onion marinate in some salt and the vinegar. This vinegar will be used later as well for the salad dressing.
  • Take the leaves from the little gem or romaine lettuce and wash quickly under cold water.
  • Layer the lettuce in a bowl, and tomatoes, basil leaves & feta.
  • Cook the egg to your preferred cooking point. Easiest thing is to add the haricot verts the last 4 minutes of the cooking time.
  • In the meanwhile, you can make the dressing. Place the marinated onion on the salad and add the walnut oil to the vinegar. Whisk with some salt & pepper.
  • When the haricot verts and egg are cooked, drain them under cold water. Peel the egg and cut in 4 pieces. Add the haricot verts to the dressing, and mix through.
  • Add the egg and haricot verts to the salad, and pour over some dressing. Enjoy!
