The niçoise salad with polenta stamps

There’s so many debates about the niçoise salad : while Auguste Escoffier, famous French chef persists in adding rubber green and potatoes into it, the real nissart are not joking on this point. There are unanimous : there aren’t any cooked foodstuff in the genuine Nice salad (except tuna and hard-boiled eggs).

Originally, the niçoise salad is made up with local food and intended for poor people. Later, it get some colours and is on the rise.
