Broccoli Nicoise Salad

I found the recipe for this tasty salad in a Ontario Fresh flyer insert a few years back and I have been making it regularly since then.

4 cups broccoli florets
3 medium potatoes, cooked and diced
Lettuce leaves or mixed greens
2 tomatoes cut into wedges
2 hard-cooked eggs cut into wedges
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
1/4 cup black olives
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, pressed
1/2 teaspoon GF Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In saucepan of boiling water, cook broccoli until tender-crisp, 2-3 mins.  
Drain and plunge into cold water; drain well and place in bowl.  
Dice potatoes and combine with broccoli. 
In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, mustard, basil, salt and pepper; drizzle small amount over broccoli and potato mixture; gently toss to coat. 
Arrange broccoli mixture, tomatoes, eggs, bacon and olives on lettuce; drizzle with remaining dressing.  
Serve at room temperature.
