Warm Bacon and Egg Salad

  • FAST

From Marc Vetri, a 1999 Best New Chef, at Vetri in Philadelphia.

  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  3. 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
  4. 1 tablespoon chopped basil
  5. 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. 12 cups packed mesclun (6 ounces)
  8. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  9. 2 slices thick-cut lean bacon, cut crosswise into thin strips
  10. 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  1. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil with the vinegars, basil and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Add the mesclun and toss well.
  2. Melt the butter in a nonstick skillet. Add the bacon; cook over moderately high heat until crisp, 2 minutes. Quickly stir in the eggs and cook until barely scrambled, about 15 seconds. Remove from the heat to prevent overcooking. Spoon over the salad, toss and serve.
