Just give me something I can digest and which won't make me feel like a sweaty sloth. I realize you're probably expecting a link to a sloth meme. It's not going to happen. So I turn to one of my favorite hot weather lunches, Salade Niçoise, or as the Americains put it, nicoise salad.

Let me say right off the bat, I'm not talking about the seafood salad from the supermarket deli counter. It's mostly soggy "krab," maybe a little shrimp, some dried dill and a whole lotta mayo.

Adventuring away in the Food Republic test kitchen last Saturday, Editorial Director Richard Martin and I accidentally invented our new favorite sandwich.
