BLT salad with a poached egg

Method

  • To make the dressing, whisk the oil with 1 tbsp vinegar, the garlic, lemon juice, mustard and seasonings. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Bring a large non-stick pan of water with a little vinegar to a gentle simmer. Swirl the water with a spoon, crack the eggs into a cup (one at a time) and then float into the pan. Gently cook until the eggs are set.
  • At the same time, grill the prosciutto on a ridged grill (or in a pan) until crisp. Drain well on kitchen paper towels.
  • Then the bacon with the greens, tomatoes and dressing to taste. 
  • To serve, mound the salad on individual plates, place the prosciutto on the side and top with an egg.
