This single-serving riff on the Nicoise salad is the perfect picnic or work-lunch fare, becoming even more flavorful in transit. Just layer high-quality jarred or canned ingredients -- such as roasted red and yellow peppers, white beans, olives, artichokes, and olive oil-packed tuna and anchovies -- in an airtight jar, and drizzle with olive oil (fresh basil and blanched green beans optional). Our inspiration? A salad that Martha has enjoyed at Cavaniola's Gourmet in Sag Harbor, on Long Island, New York.
