Method

Dressing Method
1. Peel and slice the shallots into half, marinade for 24 hours in the mustards, vinegar, and spices.
2. Once marinated for 24 hours, blend/liquidize and slowly pour in the 2 oils. Add a touch of warm water as the dressing becomes too thick.
3. Adjust the seasoning with salt and white pepper.
4. Place in a container and chill.
Salad mix method
Place all the chopped salad in a large bowl and spoon in your vinaigrette. Stir gently until well mixed.
Season with salt and a twist of fresh pepper.
Great with some fresh, crusty baguette and chilled white wine
It’s also very nice with chopped ham, chopped cooked bacon or cubed cheese (a Comte works well) added. Or you can play around with the recipe and add chopped boiled egg, if you want as well, and chopped asparagus, artichokes and hearts of palm etc.
