Individual Salad Nicoise

This is also one of the new photos for our website. I usually make this in a large bowl for around 20 people, as this is one of the salads on our buffet salad menus but we have not got this on any of our menus this week. I have made this salad for 4 as a main course but it would serve 6 to 8 as a starter for a dinner party
