"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."

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Divide the romaine lettuce evenly over four plates, and sprinkle with garlic. Top each salad with tomatoes, onion, bacon, and a poached egg.
  4. 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.

Not a big fan. Felt like it was missing something - definitely too much dressing (1.5 cups for 1 head of lettuce?).

Great salad. I served it along side the "almond pork" from this site. I had never poached an egg before and i didn't know how much vinegar to add to the water and it doesn't specify in the ingre...

Even the kids loved this salad!

Nice salad! I couldn't find endive in the store so I just grabbed some radicchio that looked good. I wasn't up for raw garlic today so I sauteed it in a little bacon grease. My first time poa...

This is my new favorite salad! I had no idea how good a poached egg could be over lettuce. I am not a huge fan of endive, so I just used romaine. I used white champagne vinegar instead of red w...

Loved it! I passed on the teaspoon of sugar though.

Another tasty salad; the poached eggs (or rather, the yolks) are what make this salad just right. We don't like endive so I simply used more lettuce (mixed spring greens, to be exact) and left o...

Great simple recipe

Very satisfying salad. I have never poached an egg before, or eaten one, I hope what I ate was what it was supposed to be like! I did add a splash of white vinegar to the water, but when I put t...
