Starting with frozen puff pastry sheets for the utmost convenience, we then stuff them with tuna and green beans that have been lightly dressed, and top with olives and tomatoes for the ultimate niçoise experience. We also love the addition of fragrant and herbaceous tarragon, which is whisked into the dressing and garnished on top for extra color.

This flavorful appetizer deserves a sweet spiked drink to pair with it! Enjoy it with an apple kir royale. Simply spoon 2 Tbs. Chambord into each of 6 champagne flutes, add ¼ cup apple juice to each glass and evenly divide 1 (750 ml.) bottle chilled dry champagne among the glasses. This will serve six guests.
