Mâche Salad with Curry Vinaigrette

  • TOTAL TIME:
  • SERVINGS: 4

Chef Eric Ripert combines three simple components into a lovely, unexpected salad: mâche, crispy croutons and curry vinaigrette.

Ingredients

  1. 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  2. 3/4 teaspoon Madras curry powder

  3. 3 ounces peasant or country bread, torn into 1/2-inch pieces (2 1/2 cups)

  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  5. Kosher salt

  6. 2 ounces mâche lettuce (8 cups)

  7. 1/4 cup chopped chives (1/4-inch pieces)

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Whisk in 1/4 teaspoon of the curry powder and add the bread. Toast over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until golden and crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer the croutons to a plate.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil and 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder with the lemon juice; season with salt. Toss gently with the mâche and chives; transfer to plates and top with the croutons.
