Savoury Salad -- a la Francaise

Recipe by Sackville
READY IN: 35mins




  • Wash the potato, then cut it into small wedges.
  • Boil the potato until just tender and let cool when done.
  • At the same time, boil the eggs until hard boiled (about 10 minutes).
  • Meanwhile, fry the bacon until it is as crispy as you like it.
  • Once the bacon is cooked, use the fat in the pan to cook the mushrooms and onions.
  • Set the mushrooms and onions aside when done.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the oil and mustard.
  • Throw the cucumber into the bowl, along with about half the herbs and the garlic.
  • When the eggs are cooked, peel and let cool.
  • When all the ingredients have cooled, get a big bowl and put the lettuce in, along with everything else prepared to this point except the eggs.
  • Use your hands to mix the salad, making sure the dressing coats everything.
  • Put salad evenly into two bowls.
  • Chop the eggs into four wedges each and use as a garnish.
  • Sprinkle remaining herbs on top and serve with a touch of pepper, if desired.
