My favorite part of this recipe is the use of apples as a strach-free substitute for potatoes! And the dressing is down to natural juices and lemon juice; it doesn't get healthier than that! These little twists really elevates the salad to a new level of 'light and fresh', which isn't always be guaranteed with some of the dense nicoise classics. I have to add this was also one of the cheapest dishes I have come across. A definite favorite!
