Lazy summer days

One of the perks of summer vacation is the luxury of uninterrupted Netflix,not cooking therefore a lot of meals that consists of salads,appetizers and plenty of rose.
I spent last summer in Cannes, France and had rosé every day with lunch or dinner. It's very light and refreshing. This summer, I have tried couple of brands from Trader Joe's which were really good.

Last week I made Salad Nicoise  using the recipe from Saveur .

The only missing ingredients were the Dijon mustard and shallots. I layered the salad on a flat serving plate as they did in a cafe in Antibes, France. Here is their version:

I served the salad with cheese, crusty bread and a glass of wine. It was very yummy.
