Salade Niçoise is a classic summery dish featuring tuna, anchovies, and soft boiled eggs which, as you may gather from the name, hails from Nice in the south of France. Toulouse-born Pascal Aussignac's salad Niçoise recipe is relatively classical - so the focus should be on ingredients and presenting it beautifully on a summer's day

For the dressing, crush the cherry tomatoes and garlic cloves with a mortar, then add the oil and balsamic vinegar slowly, using the mortar to mix and emulsify. Season with salt and pepper and set aside
In a large salad bowl, mix together the anchovies, tuna, eggs, olives, tomatoes, spring onion, cucumber, celery, radishes, lettuce and salad leaves
Drizzle the salad dressing over the top and serve with crusty bread
