“A classic French “salad” recipe, the key factors here are the frisée lettuce (perfect curlicues poised to hold on to that warm and tangy bacon fat dressing and any runny egg yolk), crisp lardons of bacon, and a perfectly poached egg. It’s a simple dish that’s all about the technique, so watch our how-tos to get yourself prepared.”
