This is surely the most famous and argued-over salad in the world. My idea for deconstructing my Salade Niçoise is to present all the elements separately. The purists say there shouldn't be any vegetables at all, but I am used to having green beans and potatoes in my version. Just tell yourself you are not from Nice, and go wherever your taste takes you.
If you are really keen on preparing your soup from scratch, then the autumn is the time to buy fresh chestnuts.
Once you have it made, you can eat it hot warm or cold and it’s even better if you leave it overnight.
