Summertime picnics on heirloom levi quilts over a thick carpet of green lawn, what could be more inviting? Turn a summer evening into a special event with this picnic in a jar supper. Share highlights of the day with each other, laugh and giggle, and soak in the pleasant weather. Make the switch from the typical fried chicken and potato salad.

Salade Nicoise with TunaNicoise, (pronounced nee-swahz), is French meaning in the Nice style. It sounds fancy, looks fancy but has good old down home flavor in every bite. The ingredients are simple. Layer colorful vegetables with beige beans or mix it all together. Just make sure you use quality canned tuna packed in oil, olive oil if possible.

Recipe: Salade Nicoise dans un Pot

Prep Time: 30 Minutes | Inactive Time: 30 Minutes | Cook Time: 6 Minutes | Yield: 4 Pint Jars | Level: Moderate

Nicoise ingredients Cumin Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Cannellini and Corn

  • 2 15-oz cans cannellini beans
  • 2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup cumin vinaigrette

French Green Beans

  • medium bowl of ice water
  • 1 Tbsp salt, divided
  • 1 lb French green beans, cleaned
  • 1 Tbsp finely diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup cumin vinaigrette

Salade Nicoise

  • 2-3 salad tomatoes, sliced in thin wedges
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, quartered lengthwise
  • 12 kalamata olives
  • 1 1/4-inch slice hard salami, diced
  • 2 5-oz cans premium tuna, packed in olive oil

Special Equipment – 4 pint jars with screw or clamp lids or plastic containers with airtight lids

1 Cumin Vinaigrette – Combine sugar and cumin in a small bowl. Stir in vinegar. Slowly drizzle olive oil whisking to combine and help dissolve sugar.

Cannellini and Corn2 Cannellini and Corn – Drain and rinse cannellini beans, then place in a medium bowl with corn kernels. Stir in 1/2 cup cumin vinaigrette and set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.

3 French Green Beans – Prepare a medium bowl Green Beans in ice waterof ice water with 1/2 tablespoon salt. Bring to boil 2 quarts of water with remaining 1/2 tablespoon of salt. Place the beans into the water and cook for 2 minutes. To stop cooking, immediately place beans in the ice water. When beans are cool, place on a towel to absorb water. Dump out the ice water, dry the bowl. Place beans and red onion in the bowl. Mix in 1/3 cup cumin vinaigrette. Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.

4 Salade Nicoise – To assemble jars, salt the tomatoes and place a layer in the bottom of each jar. Using a slotted spoon, evenly divide the cannellini and corn among the jars. Sprinkle 1/4 of the diced salami in each jar. Cut the beans in half or thirds to fit in the jars and lay cross-wise on top of the cannellini beans, evenly dividing among the jars. Add 2 quarters of a hard boiled egg and 3 olives to each jar. Place half can of drained tuna on the top and seal with lid.

Nicoise with salmonInformation
Cannellinis are very creamy textured beans, an especially good choice for salad in a jar.

French green beans, sometimes called haricot verts, are skinny compared to regular beans. To clean, wash and cut off the vine end of each bean.

Use leftover grilled salmon broken in chunks on the top of the jar instead of tuna.

This could also make eight 1 cup jars or containers.

To make a salad, combine the cannellini beans, corn, green beans and red onions in one bowl and marinate for 30 minutes. Add tomato wedges, diced salami, olives and tuna. Garnish with egg wedges.

To make ahead, marinate beans, corn and green beans overnight. Boil the eggs and keep refrigerated overnight. The next day, layer ingredients in jars.

Dish Designer

  • Exchange French for regular green beans.
  • Exchange hard salami for Genoa salami.
  • Exchange kalamata for green, stuffed or dry cured olives.
  • Exchange tuna for grilled salmon.

‘Picnic in a Jar’ Series

‘Great Sauces Transform Good Food into Gourmet’ 

Recycling jars loaded with delectables

Break all the picnic rules and serve up a sumptuous outdoor lunch or supper in jars. Use really pretty canning jars or even specialty jars for these recipes. I like to wash out emptied jars and stash them for purposes unknown at the time but just waiting to be recycled with a new ‘something’ in them.

These jars laden with delectable sauces or accompaniments go out our door to share with family and friends. A couple of weeks ago my friend Michelle washed out several of her jars and gave them to me. I stow them in the small ‘hard to reach cupboard’ above my fridge. But then they start spilling onto the fridge when the cupboard is full. That’s when I know I need a new way to recycle before they end up in the recycle bin.

So here’s another idea. My ‘Picnic in a Jar ‘Series. Use them for a fun diversion from regular picnic fare.

Salade Nicoise dan un PotJune 21, 2013 – This series leads off with Salade Nicoise dans un Pot, an entrée loaded with marinated vegetables, cannellini beans, pesto tomatoes and tender tuna chunks layered in a clamp lid jar.


Mango Orange Jellified FruitJune 22, 2013 – I’m also sharing Mango Orange Jellified Fruit, a congealed salad with mango orange fruit juice, orange sections, banana slices and coconut set in individual serving jars. It’s light, fresh and healthy.


Double Chocolate BrowniesJune 23, 2013 – And last but not least, it’s dessert! But it isn’t in a jar. Requests for my famous Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies continue to mount so I’m breaking away from the jar for the final recipe in this series. Stop by for the recipe and hear about how this crowd pleaser evolved over the last 40 years.
