Delicious green salad

green salad

I prepared this green salad for me yesterday. I loved it and I am already planning when I am going to eat it again ;-).

It is basically a green salad with bacon, poached egg and a mustard dressing. The tastes match perfectly and if you eat it with some bread, it becomes a complete meal, plenty of carbohydrates, proteins and minerals.

I saw it on Saveur and saved it. Usually I plan to prepare 5 to 6 recipes, but when I am in the kitchen I realize I am going to be able to do only 3 or 4… and then I choose and often I decide to prepare what seemed the less desired dish. This green salad wasn’t among the priorities, but during the final choice, it won its place and, gained my preference ;-).

I used the green salad I had at home and just cooked the bacon in the microoven with absorbent paper. Regarding the dressing, I did what I like most to emulsionate: put all the ingredients into a marmelade jar (empty ;-)), close and shake it vigorously, easier is impossible – and the emulsion comes out perfectly.

  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • salt
  • freshly grounded pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • green salad
  • ½ Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  1. Put 3 to 4 sheets of absorbent paper on a small plate, put the bacon stripes, add more paper above and press a bit.
  2. Microwave it until crispy.
  3. Divide the green leaves between two plates.
  4. Divide the bacon among the plates.
  5. Put the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and mustard into a marmelade jar, close it and shake vigorously. Distribute the dressing over the greens.
  6. Put abundant water to boil and add the vinegar.
  7. Open each egg on a ramekin and, when the water is boiling, let the egg slip carefully into the water.
  8. Let it cook for about 2 minutes and then carefully take it out with a slotted sppon and add to one plate. repeat with the other egg.
  9. Buon appetito!
