i don't know what i used, but it was some kind of curly lettuce i got at the farmer's market.
what i did:
- i tossed my lettuce with some chopped tomatoes + a homemade mustard vinaigrette, and sprinkled some fresh thyme leaves (from my garden!) on top.
- i chopped up some bacon from moccia's, and fried it crispy. sprinkled on top of salad.
- poached an egg (though 2 eggs would have been even better)
- set egg(s) on top of salad, sprinkle with sea salt + freshly ground pepper, and enjoy.
for my vinaigrette i whisked together olive oil, vinegar, dijon mustard, honey (or maple syrup), chopped fresh thyme leaves, salt,+ pepper. i don't measure, i just make it to taste. for some better information about making vinaigrettes, go here.
and here's a recipe from epicurious for a traditional frisee salad with lardons and poached eggs.
