Nicoise, anyone?

Having a few steamed potatoes leftover from our Valentine's Day fondue instantly made me think about making salade Nicoise! Isn't it funny how certain things can trigger other things? Anyhow, I made them!

Romaine topped with hard-boiled egg, kalamata olives, steamed green beans, seasoned tempeh, steamed potatoes, and cherry tomatoes, all topped with a homemade vinaigrette. I would have included capers, too, except we're out -- the horror! ;)

I realized this week that I am REALLY ready for spring. I was looking at the berries in the grocery store this week, thinking, "I can't WAIT for the farmer's market!!!!" Anyone else ready for fresh, local food?? I know I am!
