Nicoise Salad

Thanks for voting! You already voted!
For a summer lunch or dinner, one of my favorite salads. There is always a debate going on about this salad, what should be in there and what not. I don't use potatoes in mine, but if you like to add them, do so. I have added the sardines because I like them in this salad, but you can leave them out. The dressing can be drizzled over the salad instead of mixing it in, or you can use your own favorite dressing. Serve with some nice bread, and a glass of wine (of course!) Cook time of the Beans is not included.
