What's For Dinner Tonight?

Salade Niçoise Pour Une
1/2 Shallot, minced
1 TBS chives, minced
1 TBS Dijon mustard
1 TBS honey
2 TBS red wine vinegar
1/4 Cup EVOO
2 Cups baby spinach
5 Kalamata olives, pitted, and sliced
1 Small tomato, diced
2-3 Cooked new potatoes, quartered
1/4 Cup green beans, blanched
1/2 Can of tuna, drained
1 Hard boiled egg, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste

It's just me for dinner tonight!  I'm thinking I should treat myself to a nice, big, healthy salad for dinner.  I've been into Niçoise salads lately, and it's a great option for dinner since it's packed with veggies and protein.  The picture doesn't do this salad justice, because it really is a gorgeous dish.

In a small bowl mix the first five ingredients until well combined.  Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Toss the spinach with the olives, tomatoes, potatoes and green beans.  Top with tuna and egg.  Drizzle dressing over the salad and season with salt and pepper.
