Combining uncooked and cooked ingredients in a salad creates a depth of flavor and variety of textures. In this niçoise-inspired salad, the potatoes, green beans and fish are all roasted together on a sheet pan and then served atop fresh baby salad greens, herbs and cherry tomatoes.



  1. Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 425˚ F. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Fill a bowl with ice water. Toss the potatoes in a separate bowl with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the potatoes to the hot baking sheet, cut-side down, reserving the bowl. Bake until browned on the bottom, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, add the eggs to the boiling water; cook 9 minutes. Remove and transfer to the ice water; set aside.
  3. Add the green beans and olives to the reserved bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. After the potatoes have browned, toss and move to one side of the pan. Add the green beans and olives to the other side. Brush the char with 1 teaspoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the fillets on top of the vegetables and bake until the fish is just cooked through and easily flakes with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Whisk together the mustard, olive brine, vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a small bowl. Combine the salad greens and herbs in a large bowl; toss with three-quarters of the dressing.
  5. Divide the salad among bowls. Top with the fish, tomatoes, potatoes, green beans and olives. Peel and slice the hard-boiled eggs and add to the salads. Drizzle with the remaining dressing.
