This is a fishy salad that is\n supposed to be typical of Nice, in the south of France. You can either mix\n everything up in a salad bowl and let people serve themselves, or arrange the\n items separately on each plate, which I think looks more attractive.

Tip: To cut a tomato\n zig-zag, use a small sharp pointed knife. Push it into the centre of the\n tomato from one side, at an angle of 45o. Then make similar cuts\n all around the perimeter, joining successive cuts to each other at alternate\n 45o angles to make a zig-zag pattern. When the last cut meets the\n first one, pull the two halves of the tomato apart and place them in the\n salad bowl or on the plates with the cut part facing upwards to look like a\n flower.
