Nicoise salad

I was inspired to have the tuna nicoise salad tonight because of having the leftover potatoes.  The other ingredients (hard boiled eggs, haricots vert, seared tuna) are all so quick to pull together.  I would not bother fixing the potatoes just to have the salad.  The purple potatoes are so pretty and I had the dressing leftover from last night.  All went together nicely.  I hardboiled the eggs yesterday afternoon, blanched the haricots vert before work this morning (2 minutes in boiling water) so when I got home from work, I just needed to brush the tuna with olive oil, salt and pepper and sear it 3 minutes a side on the grill pan.  I like a couple of anchovies and some olives on mine but my husband skips those.  Here is a picture:

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
