French Bistro Frisee Salad

There's something so chic and still so hearty about this favorite inspired by the delicious version at Dupont Circle's charming and bustling Bistrot Du Coin, where my husband, Patton, and I once whiled away a blizzard drinking Alsace wines and Belgian beers and sharing mussels, salty frites, and this yummy salad.

French Bistro Frisee Salad


Generous handful of frisee lettuce
1 poached egg
2 Strips of bacon, crumbled
Chopped Cucumber
A few Croutons
1 tbsp Champagne
1 tbsp Champagne vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
Salt & Pepper

Place frisee on a plate, sprinkle with crumbled bacon, chopped cucumbers and croutons and gently place your poached egg on top. To create the dressing, whisk together champagne, champagne vinegar, oil, mustard and honey in a small bowl. Drizzle dressing over frisee, bacon and egg. Season with salt & pepper.  Make sure to break the egg so the yolk runs messily over everything, making the salad properly delicious and enjoy with a nice hunk of crusty french bread. Pin It Now!
