Cravings!


I've been craving a salad like this!

A few weeks ago, we went to a French restaurant in Bethesda called Mon Ami Gabi and I ordered a frisée & bacon salad with a soft-poached egg and croutons. It was wonderful and I want it again...NOW.

Funny thing...this isn't something I've every had before and after one tasting, I dream about it. Those crazy French! Adding bacon and eggs to a salad, who knew...! Add bread made by the hand of g-o-d and dry white wine...perfect meal!

I need help...I can make this...but I don't know what kine of dressing to use. Anyone have a suggestion? Like I said, this isn't a salad I've had before and there was no listing for the dressing on the menu so I don't know what I would use. Help me! This is my current desire and addiction.

From what I remember it was a very citrusy vinagrette. Maybe something like lemon juice and champagne vinegar?

Yeah, I'd guess a sweet-tart vinaigrette, too. Honey and mustard?

I would try a lemon vinagrette of some sort. I'm pretty sure that's what Restaurant Eve uses. Actually, all of the salads of that type that I've had have used lemon.

Not sure what they would use, but I would suggest either a mustard vinnegrette or the citrus but with either I would use fresh lime juice to really make the flavors stand up and take notice.
