Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.Albert EinsteinThis is one of those recipes that you will find yourself making over and over again (and warning, it’s borderline addictive too!). Earlier this summer, it seemed as if I was getting hints from all corners to make this simple Salad Niçoise. From Laura’s drop-dead gorgeous version using French Lentils, to this lovely composition with marinated chickpeas over at Minimalist Baker, it honestly felt as though my best girlfriend (and business partner) and I just kept talking about it, gorgeous pictures and the minutia of creative ingredient details included. Truth be told we talk about food an awful lot, and it was during one of our delicious summer brainstorms that we discussed the fried capers. YES, FRIED CAPERS, maybe one of the tastiest things ever to grace the earth. They are everything here and they really make this salad something else!
