Niçoise Sauce

Recipe by Simone Lagomarsino


We love poached, fresh Atlantic Salmon – particularly during the summer months – and we love to use this Niçoise Sauce on that salmon dish. If you would like to review our favorite, Atlantic Salmon Fillet Poached recipe, just click here.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4-6 Servings


No special equipment is needed to prepare this wonderful sauce.



½ cup of Tomatoes, chopped

1 tablespoon of Dijon Mustard

1 tablespoon of White Wine Vinegar

Juice of half of a Lemon

1 tablespoon of non-pareil Capers, which means they are the smallest, most delicate, and best Capers

2 cloves of Garlic, minced

2 tablespoons of Niçoise Olives, chopped

1 tablespoon of Chives, chopped

1 tablespoon of White Onion, finely chopped

1 teaspoon of Shallots, minced

1 tablespoon of Radishes, finely chopped (Optional: We grow radishes, so we add some of our fresh radishes in this dish.)

2 tablespoons of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil



Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until they are well-integrated.  Store them in the refrigerator until it is time to serve.
