Crisp frisée lettuce served topped with bacon  and a mustard and shallot vinaigrette.





  1. Make the dressing

    Finely dice the shallot and place in a medium bowl with the mustard and sherry vinegar. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

    Slowly whisking in the olive oil create an emulsification. Pouring it in too fast will cause the sauce to separate.
  2. Prepare the salad

    Thoroughly rinse the  frisée and pat dry. Trim the bottom and cut the lettuce in thirds. Slice the cooked bacon and place in the salad. 

    Toss in the dressing and serve.
