Our Own Nicoise Salad Bowl

Pronuounced NEE-SWA, this French salad classically uses tuna, but why stop with that? Our Herring fillets have so much more flavor than tuna and when it is prepared with the kick of earthy black pepper, you wil mnever go back to tuna. The dressning, as well, enjoys a boost from our friends at Raye's Mustard®, right here in Downeast Maine. We ordinarily would have you opt for a different mustard if you couldn't find Raye's, but it just wouldn't be the same. Find it! Buy it! Use it!
