Salad Niçoise

Salade Niçoise and Pan bagnat – two specialties from Nice

Do you know Salade Niçoise e Pan bagnat?

Since I am in Nice right now, I enjoy the wonderful French cuisine. Of course, the typical Salade Niçoise and the less known “Pan bagnat” are not to be missed.

Both are quickly made and on these hot days soothingly fresh.

What is Pan bagnat?

It’s simply a Salade Niçoise packed in a bun. No sauce is added to the salad, only olive oil.

It’s best to cut the bun only 2/3 so that the – somewhat moist – contents can’t run out.

Pan bagnat

Cut the bun only 2/3

Then arrange the salad as described above directly in the bread
