Salade Lyonnaise Recipes

Whether Lyon ever was the gastronomic capital of France is debatable, but it sure has spawned some great dishes, including salade Lyonnaise, not the most simple salad ever made but one that approaches perfection in a way others do not. The combination of bitter greens (traditionally frisée, though escarole, dandelion, and arugula all work beautifully), crisp bacon, barely cooked eggs and warm vinaigrette is really unbeatable.

  • Put frisée or other greens in large salad bowl. Put olive oil in skillet over medium heat. When hot, add bacon and cook slowly until crisp all over, about 10 minutes. Add shallot or onion and cook until softened, a minute or two. Add vinegar and mustard to the skillet and bring just to a boil, stirring, then turn off heat.
  • Meanwhile, bring about an inch of salted water to a boil in a small, deep skillet, then lower heat to barely bubbling. One at a time, break eggs into a shallow bowl and slip them into the bubbling water. Cook eggs for 3 to 5 minutes, just until the white is set and the yolk has filmed over. Remove each egg with a slotted spoon and drain briefly on paper towel.
  • If necessary, gently reheat dressing, then pour over greens (they should wilt just a bit), toss and season with salt and pepper to taste. Top each portion with an egg and serve immediately. (Each person gets to break the egg.)

Here in Lyon, France there are little bouchons everywhere that serve pork as a specialty. One of the entry-meal items is a salad called Salade Lyonnaise. This salad is delicious in flavor and packed with protein. I changed some of the ingredients to reflect a better flavor. Very simple, very French. This makes enough salad for 4 people.

  • Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Meanwhile, fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, pour in the vinegar, and keep the water at a gentle simmer. Crack an egg into a small bowl, then gently slip the egg into the simmering water, holding the bowl just above the surface of the water. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Poach the eggs until the whites are firm and the yolks have thickened but are not hard, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon, dab on a kitchen towel to remove excess water, then place onto a warm plate.
  • Divide the romaine lettuce evenly over four plates, and sprinkle with garlic. Top each salad with tomatoes, onion, bacon, and a poached egg.
  • Whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar, herbes de Provence, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Spoon the dressing over the salad, or serve on the side.

This is my go-to recipe for an easy entree salad. My French cookbook advises to use Frisee lettuce, but I just use a Mesclun mix. I have yet to find Frisee that has a good flavor, but I have been told that a very white head is superb. I don't measure the amount of white vinegar I use in poaching the eggs, but just add a short "glug." I love the flavor of bacon with all of its glory in the "drippings." But to decrease the amount of animal fat in this recipe, I replace most of the drippings with olive oil and find that I still get all the flavor of the bacon from the browned bits that remain. (The fat in the egg yolk is a very healthy fat) This recipe can serve 2, but usually this is a solo dinner for me.

  • Heat 2--3 Tablespoons olive oil and garlic clove until hot.
  • Fry baguette slices making crouton and drain on paper towels. Pour off the oil, discarding garlic, and save oil for another use, like frying crouton for future salads, if desired. Wipe skillet clean with a paper towel.
  • Fry bacon in skillet until crisp and drain on paper towel.
  • You can either drain off the bacon grease and saute onion slices in remaining olive oil. Or you can saute onion in the bacon grease. Either way, let the browned bits from bacon remain in your skillet and saute onion until softened.
  • Meanwhile heat water to simmering in a medium sized saucepan. Water should only be simmering, not boiling. Add a touch of salt and some white vinegar. The vinegar helps the eggs hold their shape in the simmering water.
  • Break eggs into a saucer, one at a time, and gently slide into simmering water. Allow to simmer until desired doneness and whites are set. For an oozing yolk, it takes just under 3 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs from simmering water and drain on paper towels.
  • While eggs are draining, complete making the dressing. Add the red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard to the warmed onions and combine well, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the skillet. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Salt is essential for the dressing).
  • Stir in crouton, then add in the lettuce to wilt ever so slightly.
  • Serve up in a large bowl, topping with crumbled bacon and poached eggs.

4 cups mesclun, washed and drained
8 slices baguette, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, crushed slightly
3 -4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
4 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 -2 egg, for poaching
2 slices bacon
salt and pepper

  • Remove and discard the root ends from each head of frisee lettuce. Chop leaves into 1-inch pieces and transfer to a large salad spinner. Fill with cold water, swish well to remove any dirt and sand, then drain and spin until completely dry. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Whisk shallots, Dijon, salt, pepper, and sherry vinegar together in a large bowl until well combined. Add oil slowly, a little at a time, and continue whisking until dressing is thick and emulsified; set aside.
  • Place bacon in a cold pan over medium heat; cook until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • While the bacon is cooking, fill a pot with water. Add a pinch of salt and a dash of white vinegar and bring to a simmer.
  • Place 1/4 of the chilled frisee in a mixing bowl. Add 1/4 of the cooked bacon (don't add too much bacon grease, but it's okay to have a little) along with a generous helping of the vinaigrette. Toss with tongs until frisee is thoroughly coated. Transfer to a salad plate or shallow bowl. Repeat to prep the remaining three salads.
  • Drop eggs, one at a time, into the simmering water and let cook, without touching, for 20 to 30 seconds. Nudge them gently with a spoon to make sure they're not stuck on the bottom and continue to cook until whites are set and yolks are runny, 2 to 3 minutes more. Lift each poached egg carefully with a slotted spoon, drain well, and place carefully on a salad, flipping so the yolk is facing down.
  • Sprinkle with cayenne, sea salt, and chives and serve.

  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan, then add the bacon and garlic. Sizzle for about 15 mins until the bacon is crisp and brown, then scoop it out with a slotted spoon into a bowl, leaving the garlic and bacon fat in the pan. Throw the bread into the pan and toss in the bacon fat, adding the remaining oil if the pan is dry. Fry the croutons for 5 mins on a low heat, tossing occasionally until golden and crisp, then remove pan from heat.
  • While the croutons are frying, make the dressing. Whisk the chopped shallot, vinegar, mustard and 1 tbsp water in a small bowl. add the oil gradually to make a thick dressing, season, then set aside. Cut away and keep the lighter lettuce leaves and wash if needed, discarding any of the tough outer leaves.
  • When all of your ingredients are ready, bring a pan of water to a gentle boil and add the vinegar. Crack the eggs into small bowls then gently lower into the water and poach for 3 mins exactly. Line a plate with kitchen paper and use a slotted spoon to lift the eggs onto the plate (see tip).
  • Tip most of the croutons, lardons, all the leaves and two-thirds of the dressing into a salad bowl and toss well. Pile the salad high into the middle of two plates and arrange the remaining croutons and lardons around the side of the plates with the shallot rings. Drizzle the rest of the dressing around the outside and, just before serving, top each plate of salad with an egg, then season it.
