Kiwi Summer Salad with French Dressing


Inspired by the famous Salad Nicoise (Ni-Swaz) we’ve swapped good ol’ Kiwi ham for the traditional tuna. This salad looks just like a New Zealand summer, fresh and wonderful! We’ve used a few left-over cooked potatoes, beans and lettuce from the garden and of course eggs to make this main course or side salad.



  • 8 eggs
  • 8 previously boiled new potatoes
  • 500g ham
  • 20 green beans boiled breifly and cooled in cold water
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small head of lettuce or mixed salad leaves
  • For the dressing
  • 7 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice or wine vinegar
  • 0.5 tsp French mustard
  • 1 garlic clove peeld and crushed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme


  1. Boil and peel the eggs.
  2. Lay the lettuce in a salad bowl or 4 divide among individual bowls.
  3. Add the potatoes, beans, ham and tomatoes.
  4. Top with the boiled eggs.
  5. Pour the dressing over the salad (use as much or as little as you like)



  • The easiest way to make a salad dressing is to put all of the ingredients in a clean jam jar, put the lid on and shake vigorously.
