    Sackville's Note:

    I modeled this salad after the kind you get in French bistros -- more a meal than a salad and great for taking as a packed lunch. A little bit of blue cheese mixed in would be divine, if you enjoy that kind of thing.

      Outstanding!!! I made this for my mom and me for lunch the other day. What a total delight. So fresh and full of good things. I really liked the sprinkling of fresh chives and mint on top. The bacon and mustard dressing are reallly the highlight of this recipe Thanks Friedel. We really enjoyed your wonderful salad ;)

      I enjoyed the salad alot. I left out the mint (personal preference), but otherwise followed the recipe. I will make this one again.
