Salade Nicoise Sandwich with Sauces’n Love Mint Pesto Spread


  • One Jar Sauces’n Love Mint Pesto
  • 2 small baguettes
  • 3 small red potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 7 tablespoons plus 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4-5 cups cleaned and dried mixed lettuces
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 12 Niçoise olives
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons capers
  • 6 anchovy filets (optional)

  1. Place the potatoes in cold salted water in a medium pan and bring to a boil. Simmer until tender, about 15 minutes, then cool, peel, and quarter.

  4. Toss, mixing well.
  5. Arrange the eggs, onions, tomatoes, radishes, olives, capers, anchovies, and tuna over the lettuce.
  6. Sprinkle the eggs, onions, tomatoes, and radishes with salt. Drizzle the salad with any remaining dressing.
  7. Split the 2 small baguettes. Pull out and then discard some of the white bread inside.
  8. Spread Sauces’n Love Mint Pesto inside the bread.
  9. Fill with salad.
  10. Set aside for about 20 minutes, then cut into 8 pieces and serve.
