With its rainbow of colors and plethora of textures, Niçoise Salad makes for a fun outdoor brunch. In this updated take on the southern French classic, the canned tuna and anchovies are substituted for fresh Yellowfin tuna that's been cured with anchovy paste. The curing process not only preserves the tuna by drawing out moisture and adding salt, it also infuses the tuna with all the umami from the anchovies. Seared and sliced, the tuna becomes a mild ham that pairs marvelously with the platter of vegetables.
