La Salade Beaujolais


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Toss the bacon and croutons in a little olive oil and cook in the oven until golden.
  • To make the dressing, whisk the mustard with the garlic, 1-2 tbsp white wine vinegar and seasonings. Then add equal quantities of vegie and olive oils little by little, continually whisking, to reach thickish consistency. Taste for seasoning.
  • Bring the red wine and red wine vinegar to the simmer in a heavy-bottomed pan. Swirl the liquid and carefully break open the eggs into the pan. Poach to the desired degree, basting with the liquid as you do so.
  • Then toss the croutons and bacon with the lettuce and dressing.
  • To serve, mound the salad on individual plates and top with an egg.
