Gray Saturday Salad
Equal parts animal fat and crisp veggies, cooked ingredients and raw ones—this salad makes little sense other than it’s exactly what I want at 1PM on a gray Saturday afternoon.
for the salad
kale (lacinato or curly), torn
fennel, trimmed, cored and thinly sliced
medium-boiled eggs, sliced
goat cheese, crumbled
bacon, cut into pieces and fried
For the dressing
salt & pepper
red wine vin
Fry bacon pieces and boil eggs for 8 minutes. Let bacon cool on towels and eggs in an ice bath. Then peel and slice the eggs
Combine all the elements of the salad
Whisk together ingredients for the dressing. (1 part lemon, 1 part red wine vinegar, 3 parts olive oil, a small spoonful of mustard and salt and pepper to taste.)
Toss together and serve.
