Salade Antibes from Provence

Method

  • Cook the potatoes in lightly salted, boiling water until tender, adding the beans towards the end. Drain well and cut the potatoes into quarters.
  • To make the dressing, whisk the mustard with the garlic, vinegar and seasonings.
  • Then add enough oil, little by little, continually whisking to reach sauce consistency. Set aside.
  • Cook the mussels with the white wine, onion and parsley in a wok (or large non-stick heavy-bottomed pan), removing the mussels as they open and discarding any that don't.
  • Then gently toss the fennel, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, anchovies, potatoes, beans, eggs and the shelled mussels with about 2 tbsp drained cooking liquid and the chives in a large bowl with dressing to taste.
