  • Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Season the tuna steaks with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, for 4 minutes per side, until medium. Thinly slice the steaks, transfer to plates and serve.

Notes

A Niçoise salad isn't complete without the traditional accompaniments: mixed olives, anchovies, hard-boiled eggs and steamed potatoes tossed with olive oil and fresh herbs.

Suggested Pairing

The French Riviera is famous for fragrant, light-bodied, dry rosés made from Carignane, Cinsaut, Grenache and Mourvèdre grapes. Look for one with crisp acidity and fresh berry flavors.
